“All art is political in the sense that it serves someone’s politics” — August Wilson

By November 11, 2016Archive

We have been living in a politically charged environment for what seems like years, but has really only been months. As the dust settles, one hopes that we emerge stronger and perhaps slightly wiser. Through it all, we can seek peace and beauty in art. Come to the Bankhead to enjoy soothing music, listen to a lecture or rock to an old favorite. Head to the Bothwell to take part in a pencil sketch class or hear an intimate concert. Whatever your interest, you are sure to find a place at Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center.

We have two challenges I hope you will join us in meeting. First, we are raising the bar for our end-of-year fundraising campaign. A very generous donor has pledged a matching gift of $150,000, so every dollar we raise in November and December will be matched one-to-one up to $150,000. The second challenge is to reach 1,000 members in 2016. With over 925 now, we hope if you are not already a member, you will join and help us reach that goal.

As in politics, we in the arts are sustained by the participation of our citizens. I am grateful and humbled by your support throughout the year; we could not do this without you. Thank you!

Scott Kenison, Executive Director
