The Others: a 70' x 20' wall mural production
The owner's of Telegraph (an art institution in the heart of the Oakland Art Murmur district) have given us (The Others) their exterior wall to paint a large scale mural for June's Art Murmur. Oakland's Art Murmur which occurs on the first Friday of every month draws thousands of visitors to the area to partake in the local art scene. It is a vibrant happening where local artists are given a chance to shine. The non-douchebag owners at Telegraph are one of the few that are really supporting local artists by giving up their exterior walls and giving us a chance to shine. Already this year the walls have seen beautiful pieces by Eddie Colla, David Young V, Filth Grime, Hugh Leeman, GATS, No One Art, Onedr and Nite Owl.
For June's Art Murmur we are going LARGE !!! We have planned a colorful and character filled production for the exterior wall of the Beer Garden. The Others aka Nite Owl, Onedr, Reggie Warlock and Basic Lee are collaborating to bring this epic piece to the masses. Oakland needs more public art and we are happy to help. The wall to be painted is highly visible from the street and can be enjoyed daily by passersby in addition to the customers of Telegraph.
This is a gift to Oakland and we could use a little help securing funds for paint. We've privately funded $250 of paint, but we know we need much more to complete this large scale endeavor. At the minimum we can use another $250 worth of spray paint. Any extra funds will allow us to expand our color selections, procure scaffolding (and we're really dreaming here, but maybe a cherry picker ??? ) and possibly go even larger with the mural. So don't stop donating when we reach our goal. We would love the chance to do more.
We are offering various gifts for your donations. All of which are made by the artists that are contributing to the mural.
Thank you in advance for your support !!! Please come out to view the final Wall Mural in June. We hope to see you at Telegraph that night.
Here's a sneak peak at what we have in store for June. Nite Owl and Onedr rocked this fence at Telegraph for the May Art Murmur. Just a small glimpse of the colorful characters we have planned for June.
