A place for artists by artists, the cozy Naming Gallery has become, we’ve got to say it, a big name in downtown Oakland on 15th Street. Big glass windows allow passersby to peep in at this hub where new-media, design and music intersect. Hit up the O.G. Beat Meet every second Sunday of the month to join an freeform community of artists and musicians sharing insights and off-the-cuff performances.
