Hop on Art Walk Shuttle Friday Night
The 2nd Friday Art Walk spotlights art, culture and nightlife in Alameda each month. Galleries, shops and bars stay open late each second Friday and feature local art, live music and special discounts. The City of Alameda, MV Transit and Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. have partnered with 2nd Friday Art Walk to provide a free shuttle that loops from east to west in Alameda and includes a stop in Oakland’s Jingletown neighborhood.
The loop consists of seven stops and takes about 40 minutes to complete. The free shuttle takes riders to the hotspots. The shuttle starts at Encinal Avenue and Oak Street and runs continuous loops from 6 to 9:20 p.m.
At Encinal and Oak, riders have easy access to showings at Studio 23, 3Dot, The Red Door and The Local. The route then heads toward Webster Street on Encinal. The second stop is Inkblot Gallery.
At Webster, riders have easy access to Feathered Outlaw, The Pacific Pinball Museum and Fireside Lounge, each displaying art of various Bay Area artists.
The shuttle next heads back toward Park Street on Lincoln Avenue. On the way, the shuttle stops at The Frank Bette Center for the Arts at the corner of Paru Street. Riders can view the latest show and grab a quick drink at the nearby Swell Bar.
Before crossing the Park Street Bridge, the shuttle stops at Alameda Island Brewing Company, where a new art exhibit hangs every other month.
Once over the bridge, the next stop is Jingletown, home to several talented East Bay artists. There riders can visit Gray Loft Gallery and Jingletown Art Studios.
The shuttle then heads back over the Park Street Bridge to the last stop on the loop. Not to be missed, this stop has easy access to galleries including: Curated, Autobody Fine Art, Phoenix (on Lincoln across from the library) and The Space on Santa Clara Avenue.
Street parking after 6 p.m. is free. A free parking garage is located at 1416 Oak St.
