The First Annual Art Expo was held June 12, and even with graduation parties and the local Rodeo in competition, the Bothwell Arts Center was humming all day with artists and those interested in exploring the arts.
The Downtown Livermore Art Stroll is all about making the visual arts more visible in Livermore’s Cultural Art District. Downtown Livermore businesses that support the local arts by displaying the work of local artists on the walls of their establishments get credit, literally, on the map.

You might have some questions about AVA.
Where did AVA come from?
In May of 2015, AVA was born in a Livermore coffee house, with the dream and enthusiasm that if local artists and art organizations work together, we can build a stronger more visible and stable visual arts community in the San Francisco Tri-Valley. Two months later, AVA got its name of Alliance for the Visual Arts or AVA for short. In January of 2016, AVA claimed its territory in cyber space with the allianceforthevisualarts.org website. In March of 2016, AVA posted this, its first blog entry.
