Art And Soul Recap
This weekend we had the opportunity to sponsor a long-standing community event in downtown Oakland. Art and Soul is an annual cultural festival in its 16th year running, which features a vibrant street fair, live entertainment and amazing food! For 2 days, downtown Oakland shuts down to host this eclectic crowd of young and seasoned artists alike, as they share their passions and stories with the community and those lucky enough to visit the event.
This is the 3rd year that we have had the pleasure to attend, and we had a blast. As a business operating within the city, we always feel it is important to be involved in events that focus on the amazing mixes of style and community in the city. Our booth this weekend focused on High Art. High Art represents the culture of so many around the world, making it a big hit in the city center. We had aluminum prints created from some of our favorite pieces, and the feedback was amazing. Many of the pieces submitted to High Art have deep religious and cultural stories rooted in each stroke and line, pulling interest from the diverse population present in Oakland.
Throughout the weekend we were able to talk to so many aspiring artists and spread the word about High Art 2017, which promises to open up more opportunity to the global community of art enthusiasts that join us every year for the competition.
