Oakland Artists Gala
It’s a night of entertainment and appreciation for the creative community of Oakland. There will be a silent auction featuring works from Oakland artists. The Bay Area Mural Program strives to continue their mission of artistic excellence, education, and community enrichment.
Black artists come on stage and show what they got, whether it’s singing, stand up comedy, poetry, rapping, playing instruments and so much more. The event coordinator Goldbeams throws this event. They change location each month so follow their Instagram @gold.beams for updates.
Top Chef contestant Nelson German created this Afro-Latino kitchen/longue. Sobre Mesa means “over the table.” It’s a reference to having conversations around the table after you’re nice and full, and done eating. There’s an art gallery in the spot featuring works from local Afro-Latino artists that you can purchase.
