15th Annual ArtWalk Livermore
Saturday, October 9 from 11am-5pm in Downtown Livermore
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. See more about the artists participating in ArtWalk 2015:ArtWalk Artists Gallery.
Special art destination offered for 2015 included Steamroller Print Fest at Bothwell Downtown Art Studios, 62 South L Street; open studios at the popular Firehouse Art Studios, Tree Sweater Forest up and down First Street, and Livermore schools art exhibit in the Visitors' Center at the Bankhead Theater.
ArtWalk also provides free space for the annual exhibit from the Disabled Veteran's Painting Program, a year-round, all-volunteer art program led by Charles "Bud" Donaldson. ArtWalk provides discounted booth space to worthy nonprofits such as Shakespeare's Associates; Ruraq Maki, Hands that Create, a group dedicated to raising funds for women in third-world countries by selling their handmade wares; and Cheza Nami, a group that promotes cultural diversity in the community.
Thank You to all of the ArtWalk Sponsors who have made ArtWalk 2015 possible!
