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.
Special art destinations include open studios at Downtown Artists Studios at 62 So. L Street, Livermore Cultural Arts Council center in the Chamber of Commerce parking lot, Firehouse Art Studios, Tree Sweater Forest up and down First Street, Nancy Elizabeth Saltsman's Studio, and Livermore schools art exhibit in the Visitors' Center at the Bankhead Theater.
ArtWalk also provides free space for the annual exhibit from the DisabledVeteran's Painting Program, a year-round, all-volunteer art program led by Charles "Bud" Donaldson. Look for the Veterans exhibit this year inside the Bankhead Theater.
The Livermore Cultural Council will be at the Chamber of Commerce parking lot on First Street to showcase their many cultural member organizations and to celebrate their 50th Anniversary. There will be live music and dance all day at this destination.
