Art and Music in the Gardens - Hidden Gem of Oakland

One of the local hidden gems that even those who grew up here don't know about is The Gardens at Lake Merritt. This amazing place is run by volunteers and donations, so this weekend please come by if you haven't been there before, or if you have, please support this fundraising event to keep this wonderful place. Free admission.

My art booth will be outside near Japanese Garden, whereas most artists will be showing indoor. A portion of my sales will be donated to support this garden.

Below are some of the mobile phone photos I took while visiting there.

I also have a flickr photo set of the Bay Area if you care to look. They were all taken by my smart phone.
