Celebrating the life and legacy of one of Oakland’s finest.

Michael “Dream” Francisco was one of Oakland’s prolific artists, locally renowned and globally respected, not only for his innovative and original style, but also for his community and social justice outlook.

In 2010, ten years after his death, the City of Oakland proclaimed the day of his death, February 17th, Dream Day, to honor the contributions he made to the City. Dream would have been 50 on August 15th, 2019.
