Eureka's first Street Art Festival is happening August 11 - 18, 2018. Sponsored by the Black Faun Gallery, Humboldt Cider Company and the City of Eureka, this weeklong festival will showcase the creation of public art by local, national and international artists and transform the streets of Old Town for years to come.
After the Black Faun Arts Project commissioned murals by British artists, Dan Kitchener aka DANK and Duncan Jago aka Mr Jago, in the summer of 2017, it became clear that the community clearly appreciates art and the exciting opportunity to witness the creation of large scale works of public art. Crowds gathered every day during the mural painting to see the progress and speak with the artist. Since then, the two Opera Alley murals on G Street have become so regularly photographed for everything from commercial photo shoots to countless selfies, that they are quickly becoming iconic images of this Northwestern California port city.
Come join us for a colorful week in the street!
