The Lesher Center for the Arts gallery displays work by contemporary and historic artists alike.
The natural history and environmental education center has more than fifty species of live, non-releasable animals on exhibit.
Situated in downtown Walnut Creek, Red House Live offers a revolutionary new music experience: a state-of-the-art, all-in-one facility to buy gear, rehearse, take lessons, jam, record, perform, and network. Though its designed for all levels of musicians, Red House Live definitely appeals to the young, aspiring musician -- and looks wholly legitimate to their parents, too. Most live shows (mostly rock bands) happen on Saturday nights, start at 7:30 p.m., cost $10, and are open to all ages. The room is small, but the fancy sound and light system make up for it.
Ongoing exhibits include historical artifacts, photographs, and government records from Contra Costa County.
