Oakland Art Murmur
Some colleagues and I took an evening field trip out to the Oakland Art Murmur last Friday. I've written before about how much I like this event. This time around I overheard a lot of chatter about how it's not what it used to be--how it's gotten too big, too scene-y, too crowded, I even heard someone say too "corporate." And, well, yes, it is kind of crazy crowded. And I can't lay claim to having attended back in the good old days, before people like me found out about it. But, personally, I still think it's a great way to see a lot of interesting art all in one place, and also enjoy a festive atmosphere. Here's what I saw: Above, Vita Wells at Oakopolis.
