High Living Costs Force Oakland's Artists to Get Creative

at 10:00 AM

Oakland is known for a vibrant arts scene and its monthly Art Murmur event, a lively gallery walk and street party. But the city has also experienced the second-highest rent increases in the country. As part of our Boomtown series, we talk with members of the local arts community about the impact they're seeing: economically, artistically and beyond. They will join us for a live broadcast from the Oakland Museum of California, which is currently featuring a "Who is Oakland?" art exhibit, highlighting the city's diversity.
