Art and artists have never been more valuable – or more endangered – than in 2020
Beginning in July 2020, Oakland Art Murmur, in partnership with Immersive Arts Alliance, local lease-holders and property owners in Oakland, will activate empty storefronts with art created by Bay Area artists.
Placing creative work in a storefront that would otherwise stand empty is an intervention of a special kind, inviting us to reflect on the way artists, art, and audience are put at risk by capitalism, even as we depend on joined commerce.
Each month, join us as artists install work in empty storefronts throughout the city. Help OAM and IAA continue this work by making a donation to the program. 100% of the proceeds will go towards production, installation and artist compensation.
