Jingletown is one of the most recognized artists’ warehouse districts in Oakland. Among other notable artistic enterprises, it is the location of a number of galleries, including Faultine Artspace, Gray Loft Gallery, Jingletown Art Studios and Gallery, M0xy Studios and Norton Factory Studios, as well as studios of many renowned artists who are living and working here.
The moniker Jingletown came from turn of the century 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. Many of those canneries and factories closed and 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 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, which features murals by many of the residents of Jingletown.
