“Art and Music in the Gardens at Lake Merritt” brings together Oakland’s vibrant art and gardening communities in a signature event, hosted within the multi-acre gardens at Lake Merritt and Lakeside Park Garden Center. This event will run from June 4th till the 5th, and visitation hours are between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.
Along with more than fifty artists, butterfly paintings, horticultural collections, music, and a picnic, a Poetry Festival will include an afternoon series of Oakland poets reading under the old oak tree; an all-day magazine exchange booth (bring one, take one home); and a morning ekphrasia, open to all wishing to participate.
Susan will read Sunday, at 2:30 p.m., in the Rose Garden. You can visit the Gardens at Lake Merritt event page for more information!
