Enriching Human Experience through the Arts

Putting art at the heart of a community enhances our lives and inspires us to think beyond the norm. Each artist expresses their feelings and creativity in unique ways. That is why it is so important to feature artists, their work and teachings at both the Bankhead Theater and the Bothwell Arts Center.


Science, math, computers and art meet nature Explore how the intersection of mathematics, science, art and computers can be used to visualize and create artistic pieces which also describe and explain nature. As you tour this exhibit, we hope you see that, while art has often been described as an opposing discipline to mathematics, science and computers, in many ways they are very similar. In the end, all are creative processes that involve a journey of discovery. This exhibit is co-sponsored by Livermore Arts and Quest Science Center Bankhead Theater Gallery Feb 12–May 2 Open Fridays 2-6pm; Sat and Sun 1-5pm Limited entry, masks required.

n Person Art Reception on Saturday March 20 from 1:30-4:30pm. Family-friendly interactive exhibits with Covid protocols in place. Join us for this indoor/outdoor afternoon of science-meets-art.
