Who We are
An Oakland family, passionate about contributing to the culture and development of our city, focusing on arts and entertainment, that is both inclusive and accessible.
Established in 2000
The Scrivanis purchased Warheouse416 in 2000, with a dream to develop a collaborative space that would reflect the needs of the community. What started as an auto detail business shifted toward the arts in 2006, when we developed two office spaces and three artist studios. Our idea was to create affordable space for artists and small businesses in downtown Oakland.
In 2008, Warehouse416 joined The Oakland Art Murmur, an event where Oakland galleries collectively open on the first Friday of each month.
In 2010 Angela Scrivani, owner of Scrivani Productions became the gallery manager and curator of Warehouse416. In addition to upgrading the space, her broader vision was to develop Oakland-centric art shows that would represent the artists from our community.
In 2014 Warehouse416's Gallery started teaming up with guest curators from the community, who work with local artists to produce vibrant art shows each First Friday for The Oakland Art Murmur.
We continue to provide affordable space for small businesses and artists. You can also book our space for events and celebrations.
