Event Details

Join us at the last FREE Art Embraces Words Zoom Webinar program of 2021 on Sunday October 31. This special Halloween Theme program invites everyone to: Show up as Your Favorite Literary or Artistic Character. Prizes will be awarded! Surprise Reveal: Tune in to find out the favorite characters of AEW organizers Denise Nomura, Natalie Samuels Wheeler and Elana O’Loskey. 

LAC President Denise Nomura, an artist herself, is our Emcee. She introduces each writer and artist, plus fields questions from the audience. The program features emerging authors reading excerpts of their work, alternating with local artists displaying their visual art in a slideshow.  Authors and artists answer questions live-screen, which makes for a lively discussion. Co-chair Natalie Samuels Wheeler manages the tech side of our Zoom Webinar. The event is recorded and uploaded to social media. In this way the art still “embraces” the spoken word: “Ars Vita Longa, Vita Brevis” – art lives forever, life is short.

Diablo Branch; LAC PR Intern Mykaela King; and LAC Program Director Shelly Rose.
