The Jingletown Arts & Business Community announces the 6th Annual Holiday Art Walk, Saturday and Sunday, December 3 & 4, 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. An opening reception will kick off the Holiday ArtWalk on Friday, December 2, 6:00 to 9:00 pm at 420 Gallery, 420 Peterson Street, between Ford and Glascock Streets, Oakland, 94601. The reception and weekend open studios event are free and open to the public. The annual holiday open studios in this thriving arts district will highlight the work of artists who live and/or work in the area known as Jingletown, which is situated between the Park and Fruitvale Street bridges adjacent to the Oakland Estuary. Among other notable artistic enterprises, it is the location of the Institute of Mosaic Art, as well as studios of many other renowned artists who are living and working in one of the most recognized artist warehouse districts in Oakland. Jingletown got its name from Portuguese cannery workers whose earnings would "jingle" in their pockets at the end of the day as they walked home from the factories in the area. As time went on the neighborhood went into disuse, but in the early 1980’s artists realized the potential and converted many of the neglected warehouses into functioning live/work spaces. It is now a flourishing artist community and one of the fastest growing arts districts in the Bay Area. The goal of the Jingletown Arts and Business Community is to heighten awareness about the rich and diverse population of working and exhibiting artists in the neighborhood, and to promote creative opportunities in the Jingletown Arts District. Visitors to this historic arts district will see colorful mosaic murals on converted warehouse walls, intersection street painting art and the Peterson Street Community Wall, a work in progress which features murals by many of the residents of Jingletown.
