Virtual Art Walk

Live Stream Virtual Art Walk on 2nd Friday, 7PM


What to expect: (In a perfect world)
We will be showing a mix videos featuring local east bay area artists and galleries.  Artists will include DJs, Musicians, Poets, Writers, Visual Artists, Dancers, Performers and more.  While videos play all zoom participants will be put on mute.  We will unmute during intermission.  Intermissions will be held throughout the hour and last for 3-5 minutes.  That is a good time to say hi, chit-chat, grab a drink, etc.  At the end of the show we will have a wrap up that lasts for about 10 minutes.
