On Friday, May 6th at 6pm, Firehouse South location opened with about 30 vendors, a cross section of all local arts, such as fine painting, culinary, healing, sculpture, jewelry, skin care, antiques and collectibles etc...474 24th street, a main artery in the heart of the monthly Oakland Art Murmur.
We had over 1500 people coming through, everyone signing in to emphasize the private aspect of this endeavor, working with a small crew of artist friends who helped clean, set up a professional lighting system, man the doors, clean up and DJ for the night...we can truly call it a major success.
Our next step is to negotiate a do able lease, collaborate with other event producers to use the space and continue on the success trajectory of this venue.
THANK YOU FOR CONTRIBUTING AND BEING PART OF THIS LANDMARK EVENT!
SEE YOU NEXT TIME...
