ART
Art Embraces Words – Live Program July 23 from 2 to 3:30 p.m.
Artists paint with colors, writers paint with words. Together they
enrich our community. Missing your creative tribe? The Lamorinda
Arts Council invites you to return to its free live program at the
Lafayette Library. Emerging writers read from their work

surrounded by artwork from local artists Pam Stefl and Alvin
Ziegler. In this way art literally “embraces” the spoken word. AEW
program dates are July 23, and Oct. 29 (Costume Program). We
invite lovers of the spoken word and visual art, writers and visual
artists to register online to participate. Reception follows outdoors in
the Library Courtyard. Visit https://lamorindaarts.org/art-embraces-
words/ for more information.
