PaoloPhoto Films just photographed a video of a growing urban art happening in Oakland at a Friday night art gathering of young adults who are recently moving back into urban communities and neighborhoods. Young people are now looking for a better urban experience and have turned to art and wine for their social evening group gatherings in Oakland at a growing art walk-about festival.

In 2006, a group of Oakland art galleries began an evening art walk-about and now has a large following recently of approximately 20,000 people on a first Friday of the month. Now, Oakland officials have generously added cooperative equity with the local communities which Oakland has provided security with police for traffic control and merchant security.

With art such as photography,paintings,sketches and crafts, the evening also has the makings of a festival atmosphere selling food,wine,beer,live music,dance and most of all, the arts.

All in all, Oakland may have hit a home run, scored a touchdown and slam-dunked this community event for the young at heart.
