10/7/11 OEA MURMUR
October 7, 2011
A CALL FOR ART FROM CHILDREN AND TEACHERS
Since our first OEA social shares the date with Oakland “Art Murmur,”* (oaklandartmurmur.org) we decided to display the best of student and teacher art for the month of October. All members are invited to start their Friday at OEA to view that art, enjoy refreshments, and continue their Friday activities at Oakland Art Murmur.
SUBMITTING CHILDREN’S ART
Please give mounted or framed pieces (up to 5 from each school) of children’s art to your OEA Rep to bring to the Rep Council on Monday, October 3. Art will be returned at the November Rep Council. On the front have the name, grade, and school of the artist.
SUBMITTING TEACHER ART
We know you are out there! To be an Oakland teacher means to be a creative teacher! Bring your pieces of art to the OEA Center between 3:00 and 5:00 on Wednesday, October 5. Volunteers will be there to help you mount your pieces.
CELEBRATE OUR ORIGINALITY!
*The mission of the Oakland Art Murmur is to support art and cultural venues that are dedicated to increasing popular awareness of and participation in the arts of Oakland. We promote the arts community through collective marketing and outreach efforts and organize a monthly First Friday Art Walk event, Art Murmur, which is free and open to the public.
Every First Friday of the month, member galleries are open to the public from 6-9 pm. Additionally 23rd Street between Telegraph and Valley is closed to car traffic, and craft, art, and food vendors are set up along this corridor.
