I told you about Oakland Art Murmur for date nights and I’m excited to report there’s a daytime version for kids, too!
Many of the galleries that participate in Oakland’s first Friday Art Murmur gallery walk are also open EVERY Saturday afternoon for a quieter and more focused time to view art and wander.
Better than bringing our two- and four-year old kids to our date, we’d take them out to the Saturday Stroll where some of the galleries and venders are open in the shops. Much more mellow and the kids cramp your style WAY less this way.
We tried the child-led art tour on a Saturday in December beginning with lunch at Farley’s East before a walk through the galleries.
The girls really enjoyed looking at the art and trying to figure out what it was.
They also enjoyed the toys around at some of the vendors.
Both Friday and Saturday Art Murmur events in Oakland get big thumbs up from us!
