Open 1-4 PM Wednesdays & Saturdays
809 West First Street, Antioch 

Deadline:  November 1, 2016

Free Artist Reception Saturday, November 19th 2-4 PM

Traveling to and from East Contra Costa County is getting easier everyday. Highway 4 is one of the most congested roadways in the nation and the Highway 4 projects are adding significant capacity to the corridor by adding two additional travel lanes in each direction, including a High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lane for carpools and buses. In addition, the median of the reconstructed highway will be wide enough to accommodate the upcoming extended BART services from the current terminus at Pittsburg/Bay Point to a new station at Hillcrest Avenue in Antioch.

The exhibit is open to the first 60 artists and the exhibit will close once that number is reached. Exhibit is open to the first 60 artists, one piece per artist. To register send an email to Diane@Art4Antioch.org. Exhibit closes when 60 artists have registered or November 10th (which ever occurs first).
