Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center Presents ArtWalk Livermore 2020

See what our thriving, creative community has been up to in their studios while adhering to Covid restrictions. Visit this one-day outdoor art fair where Art is the main focus of the day. Meet the artists and buy one-of-a-kind, original hand made treasures. Purchase new art or hand made jewelry for yourselves or plan ahead for the holiday season and pick up beautiful, unique gifts. Support the individual, original artists of the Tri-Valley at ArtWalk Light Livermore. COVID-safety protocols will be in place and enforced – so bring your masks, leave your pets at home, and come out to visit ArtWalk “Light” – a scaled-back version of our traditional ArtWalk on Sat Oct 10.

ART ON DISPLAY

This year, to reflect on the many challenges we face, a temporary public art sculpture will be located on the plaza. Titled “Where Do We Go From Here?” two eight-foot wood posts will feature signs pointing in all directions, created in response to the theme’s question by artists of the Tri-Valley. Among the exhibitors at ArtWalk this year will be Autumn Lane Studio’s fine art pieces, KathieStudio’s hand-printed pieces, and Hudson River Inlay’s fine inlaid wood products, as well as other ArtWalk favorites. Most artwork on display will be available for purchase. Attendees are invited to stop by and support Las Positas College music alumni, who plan to provide live music during the event.

IN THE GALLERY

For the first time since closing in March, the Bankhead Gallery, located in the lobby of the Bankhead Theater, will be open for very limited access to view a new exhibit, the “Best of the Bothwell.” It will showcase more than two dozen pieces in a range of styles by studio artists who currently work or teach at the Bothwell. Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District will also display the work of young artists from Livermore, Granada, and Del Valle High Schools. The LVJUSD exhibit will only be on display during ArtWalk Light. “Best of the Bothwell” will remain in the Gallery after October 10 with very limited hours. In October, the LivermoreArts.org Online Gallery will also debut a new exhibit featuring the work of local artist, Larry Lagin.

Leave a Legacy

With a legacy gift to the Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center, you can be sure your charitable intentions will be realized while achieving the most favorable income tax benefits available. We are happy to meet with you to talk about your intentions and situation. However, we strongly recommend you consult with your estate planning professional or tax advisor to fulfill your goals for your financial portfolio and tax needs.

Making a legacy gift to the Center also qualifies you to join the Legacy Society, a group of philanthropic and pioneering members who share a strong bond with LVPAC and a desire to ensure a meaningful, lasting home for the arts in Livermore Valley.

If you have already included LVPAC in your plans (or if you intend to), please let us know. Contact Chris Carter, Director of Development and Communications, at [email protected] or call (925) 583-2311.

We accept a range of planned giving options:

In Your Will
The simplest way to leave a planned gift is to make a bequest including specific language in your will or living trust naming LVPAC as the recipient. The following is an example of suggested language to include in your will/trust:

“I give and bequeath to the Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center, a California non-profit corporation, located at 2400 First Street, Livermore, CA 94550, the sum of $____, or ______% of my estate, to be used for the accomplishment of its general purpose (or for a specific purpose as indicated).”

Charitable Gift Annuities
A charitable gift annuity (CGA) is the easiest way to create dependable income for life and help the Center. Please note that LVPAC does not administer CGAs but can recommend an administrator.

Charitable Trusts
A Charitable Remainder Trust or Charitable Lead Trust allows you to receive an estate or gift tax deduction and create a source of income for you or your loved ones while supporting the Center. Please note that LVPAC does not administer these trusts but can recommend an administrator.

Real Estate/Appreciated Assets
A variety of assets can be donated such as real estate, appreciated securities, and tangible personal property such as art or jewelry. Donating appreciated assets can help offset income and capital gains taxes. If you are contemplating gifting an investment property or a vacation home, a gift of real estate offers an excellent option for tax-wise giving. You can also include the Center as a beneficiary of real estate or appreciated assets in your will. Please be aware that as part of our gift acceptance policy, all gifts of real estate, appreciated assets and tangible personal property are examined on a case-by-case basis.

Retirement Plan Donations or Life Insurance Policies
You can name Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center as the beneficiary of your IRA, 401k or 403b retirement plan or life insurance policy. This is a simple, effective way to support the arts while reducing or eliminating significant, often unanticipated tax penalties.
