The Bedford Gallery is now offering guided walking tours of Walnut Creek's prime public artworks located around downtown. Tours start at 11 a.m. every second Saturday of the month. Admission is $5 and includes a free pass to the Bedford Gallery. Tour schedules are subject to change.
Tour highlights provide an up-close view of works by Stephen DeStaebler, Yoshio Taylor, Bruce Beasley and others, as well as the Veteran's Memorial Plaza by Cliff Garten and a recent mural by Josh Keyes. Bedford Gallery docents are trained by public art specialists and can offer information and insight appropriate for all ages.
The 60-minute, docent-led walking tours depart from the front of the Lesher Center. Walking tours will be cancelled in the event of rain. Special group tours are also available for groups of 15 or more, by reservation only. Remember to wear comfortable shoes and sun protection.
