Event Details

The Lamorinda Arts Council presents an Art Embraces Words Halloween Costume Event on Oct. 29, from 2 – 3:30 pm at the Lafayette Library, 3491 Mt. Diablo Blvd., Lafayette. Our program is held in the Arts & Science Room where emerging writers read from their work surrounded by artwork from local artists. In this way art literally “embraces” the spoken word.

While costumes are optional for our October 29, 2022 Halloween Program, we invite you to appear as your favorite Literary or Artistic character. Prizes will be awarded. Be there to see which playful characters show up! Find out who inspires lovers of literature and art. You can view YouTube videos from previous AEW programs click HERE.

Writers read their work using a mic  for 10 minutes followed by a short Q&A from the audience. Next an artist speaks about their work for 10 minutes followed by a short Q&A.  The program runs from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. followed by a reception on the outdoor patio. A media table is provided where authors are encouraged to sell books and artists provide information about their work.

The final AEW 2022 program will be a Webinar hosted by AEW alumni Denise Nomura and Natalie Samuels Wheeler in November; date TBD. We invite lovers of the spoken word and visual art, writers and visual artists to register online to participate.  Visit https://lamorindaarts.org/art-embraces-words/ for more  information. This program is funded by a generous grant from the Lafayette Community Foundation.
