Bothwell Arts Center
The Bothwell Arts Center serves as an incubator for the Tri-Valley’s vibrant arts community providing a nurturing environment for artists, performers, and cultural arts organizations to create and grow. In 2006, the Bothwell Arts Center opened offering workspaces that foster interaction and a rich exchange of creative ideas. Each October, Livermore Valley Arts’ Artwalk blankets downtown Livermore with exhibits by artists ranging from long-time professionals to emerging artisans in every medium.
For artists, regardless of their level, access to affordable space, and the support and freedom to explore and expand their creativity is essential. The Bothwell provides “a place where art happens.” Rental studios, as well as space for classes, workshops, rehearsals, displays, and events provide working room for teachers to share their skills in areas from perspective drawing and watercolor painting, to music lessons and improv. The large room at the Bothwell allows performing arts groups space for rehearsals and performances. Space to nurture the arts benefits the community as well, providing a taste of different art forms and a close involvement with their creation.
On any given day, the Bothwell Arts Center is filled with artists coming together to further their art, give free rein to their vision, and support one another, providing a community for growing the arts in Livermore.
