Celebrating Oakland First Fridays and Oakland Art Murmur, The Crucible’s Fireside Lounge is an intimate evening of art, industry, community and entertainment. This exclusive engagement takes place in The Crucible’s studio and highlights their extraordinary art programs. Explore the creative passions of professional artists and the educational opportunities available, while sipping wine and beer in this unique atmosphere. A gallery of remarkable artwork by students and faculty will be on display and live performances are scheduled throughout the night.
Join The Crucible for an evening of makers, innovators, dreamers, and creators, as they celebrate “Made In Oakland.” There will be an industrial art show, live industrial arts demonstrations, and music.
Music is courtesy of Hassan El-Tayyab from American Nomad Music and fantastic food vendors will be on hand including TART, Mr. Pops and Keena’s Kitchen! FREE admission, open to all. Discounts on upcoming Crucible classes will also be available.
Stroll through a curated gallery with pieces selected from The Crucible’s community, including faculty, artist studio renters, students, staff and volunteers. These works showcase the skills learned and perfected through the industrial arts classes taught at The Crucible. For example, a fantastic oscillating sculpture by metal and fire artist Ryon Gesink will be on display — see a video of this hypnotic piece here.
The Crucible’s Fireside Lounge lets you see demonstrations of industrial and fine arts for yourself. It is open to the general public and kids are welcome. However, parents of small children will need to pay special attention, as the studio space does have some rough edges!
