About Oakland

Oakland's renaissance is well underway, weaving vibrant arts and culture into the fabric of everyday life. Known nationwide as a diverse, creative, authentic city with voices from around the world contributing to a unique and thriving economy, Oakland is the geographic center of the Bay Area and a major transit hub. More than 30 art galleries and performing art venues and more than 100 new restaurants have opened in Oakland's downtown over the past few years. The city literally lights up with art, from innovative light-based public art installations to brightly shining historic theater marquees, in addition to the nationally acclaimed monthly Art Murmur galleries event, an edgy industrial arts scene, robust filming activity, annual festivals and performance seasons.

Oakland's notable arts and cultural organizations include the Oakland Museum of California, Oakland East Bay Symphony, ProArts, The Crucible, Museum of Children's Art (MOCHA), Eastside Arts Alliance, Youth UpRising, Attitudinal Healing Connection, Axis Dance, Project Bandaloop, and hundreds of large-scale annual cultural events including Art & Soul, Chinatown Streetfest, Dia de los Muertos, Oakland Art Murmur and others.
