Virtual 100  - June 2020 - July 2020

The Arts and Culture Commission is proud to announce the first Virtual Artist Cafe!

When schools transitioned to distance learning, many art students no longer had a place to display their work as all art exhibitions were canceled. Carolyn Considine, a high school student who resides in Lafayette, came up with a solution – a virtual Arts Café. 

This exhibit showcases work from over 100 high school and college prep schools, spanning across 27 different high schools in Contra Costa County.
