Walnut Creek Turns 100:

Celebrating the City Through Art

September 21 – November 16, 2014

Presented in honor of the city’s centennial, Walnut Creek Turns 100 is an exhibition that reflects the city’s rich history, land, commerce, community, and culture, both past and present, and features artwork made by community members.

The Bedford put out a call for artists during the past spring and summer, inviting all those who live and work in Walnut Creek, and those who love the city, to submit their artwork. The resulting show contains work by over 100 local artists working in a diverse reach of media including painting, textiles, collage, photography, and sculpture. Walnut Creek Turns 100 creates an engaging portrait of the city, as envisioned by the community.

“This show reminds us how lucky we are to live in a place where beauty is everywhere and it highlights the enthusiasm of our community members who contribute to the texture of our town. Join us as we celebrate our heritage and history.”

-Carrie Lederer, Curator of Exhibitions and Programs
