6th Annual Holiday Art Walk December Sat. & Sun. 3 & 4 11-6

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.

 events in the area, please
