Oakland Art MURMUR pt. 2

Hey Guys,
Here are some more photos from the Oakland Art Mur Mur this friday. This is part.2 to Kathleens post. We all had an idea to put out a free art table in the street between Johansson Projects gallery and Rock Paper Scissors. We were among all the vendors that were trying to sell stuff- but instead of selling, we gave away art for free.

What does giving away free art mean? How does it make you feel? Are we making a statement? It was a fun night, made people smile, got to talk to strangers, interact and hang out.

If anyone is interested in giving away free art next month at the next art murmur, you can contact me through my email- tonyhoang1@gmail.com. I can try to answer any questions you might have, or talk to mostly anyone on this blog and they can inform you.

Have a great tuesday!


  1. I like all of the photos from part 1 and 2!

  2. nice, I like how you guys are doing stuff..having fun and living large...like they say "Just Dew it" you know mountain dew..nektar of the gods.

  3. Nice photos and looks like you guys had a lot of fun! This reminds me of the free art thing we did in Jr./Sr. seminar last Spring at school. It was weird how people didn't take anything at first even though all the art was free, but when we starting pretending we were passerbys, casually look at our own art, everyone started coming over, lol.
