Spirit of Oakland

Kick off the summer with a bottle of Home Base Spirits bourbon that celebrates and supports Oakland’s creative community!

Oakland Art Murmur is pleased to present our second iteration of Spirit of Oakland, a collaborative project series that connects Oakland artists with local small businesses. The collaboration is a true expression of creativity and community in Oakland.

This year, we’re collaborating with Home Base Spirits, a female-founded and Bay Area based artisanal spirits business supporting local artists. Together, the collaboration celebrates 2022 with the theme Silver Linings. Through our public Call For Artists, we will select an Oakland-based artist to design a custom label for a limited edition, special release bottling of Home Base Spirit’s flagship bourbon. Our winning artist is Ari Takata-Vasquez whose artwork is featured on the Silver Linings bottle!

Join us for a Meet the Artist event at Nido’s Backyard on Friday, July 15 from 6 – 8 pm. Come out, have a drink, and celebrate Spirit of Oakland! RSVP HERE
