ArtWalk in downtown Livermore

Event celebrates how arts bring community together

by Dolores Fox Ciardelli

Livermore is holding its 18th annual ArtWalk turning downtown into an art district from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. next Saturday (Oct. 12).

The event, sponsored by Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center, celebrates the many ways the arts bring the community together and features handmade and original works by more than 200 artists, as well as live music, performances, hands-on crafts and drawings.

At the center of the event will be the "Building Bridges" community art project on the stairs leading to the Bankhead Plaza on First Street with 5-inch-by-7-inch postcards telling what people love most about Livermore.

The annual ArtWalk takes place throughout downtown with art ranging from contemporary to classical, abstract to realism, pottery to jewelry. Live music performances will be on the plaza, as well as at the Wine Arbor at Livermorium Plaza. Sponsored by the Livermore Cultural Arts Council, the Wine Arbor lets visitors enjoy music while resting in the shade and savoring a glass of wine from local wineries.

Most artwork is available for purchase. To encourage people to invest in art and artists, those who purchase more than $200 in art, jewelry, crafts or other products during ArtWalk are eligible for a special drawing to win a hand-painted wooden box filled with three Gold Medal-winning Livermore Valley wines.

Information and maps for ArtWalk activities are available at
