From October 5, 2012 through February 1, 2013, I participated in a monthly art festival in Oakland, California called Art Murmur that took place on First Friday of the month. (There is a simultaneous street festival featuring food trucks and live music and more called “First Friday”). I sold my screen prints and tees and displayed paintings at The Eatup in the Uptown district of Oakland. This was the first place I started selling my art. I didn’t sell much at first, but I was very happy that people were interested in my art and very grateful for the few purchases that I did make. It was more about putting my art and its message out there than sales, and it inspired me to keep making more art. Art Murmur is a very cool event with great energy and a very diverse mix of people, all with the objective of appreciating and focusing on the work of local Oakland artists.
