14th Annual ArtWalk Livermore
SAVE THE DATE!
Saturday, October 10th from 11am-5pm in Downtown Livermore
On Saturday, October 10, 2015, downtown Livermore will once again be filled with art lovers enjoying a day of art, music and shopping.
ArtWalk is a different sort of festival, as the streets are kept open and the works of over 150 artists are set-up throughout the downtown in and around parks, sidewalks, galleries, wine bars, restaurants, shops and the Bankhead Theater. This allows visitors and the local community to experience all that Livermore's wine country downtown has to offer with art as the theme for the day. Parking is free.
Art works range from contemporary to classical, abstract to realism, pottery to mixed media, handmade bags, ceramic garden art and jewelry, with subject matter from floral to figurative and much more. Click here to view the participating artist’s gallery from 2014.
The 2014 art banners that were hung as street art were, in many visitors' opinion, the best overall ArtWalk Art Banner show so far. On ArtWalk day, Visitors to the Livermore Valley Plaza examined them up close and placed bids at the Art Banner Silent Auction. Click here to download the 2014 art banner map.
Special art destination offerings for 2014 included the reception for Connections III, an exhibition of art works by alumni of CSUEB at the Bankhead Theater, open studios at the popular Firehouse Art Studios and Bothwell's Downtown Art Studios, and a community CD art display at Panama Red.

ArtWalk also provided free space for the Empty Bowl Project, part of a worldwide effort to help feed the hungry, with well over 100 ceramic bowls created and sold by local teens to help support Open Heart Kitchen; the high school and district-wide art show; and an annual exhibit from the Disabled Veteran's Painting Program, a year-round, all-volunteer art program led by Charles "Bud" Donaldson. ArtWalk also provided discounted booth space to worthy nonprofits such as Shakespeare's Associates and Ruraq Maki, Hands that Create, a group dedicated to raising funds for women in third-world countries by selling their handmade wares.
Thank You to all of the Sponsors and Contributors who have made ArtWalk 2014 possible!
