The Richmond Art Center is the largest visual arts center in the East Bay. Our four galleries and sculpture courtyard allow us to mount rotating exhibitions that display the works of emerging and established Bay Area artists. Throughout our long history we have showcased artists such as Richard Diebenkorn, Jasper Johns, Jay DeFeo, Wanxin Zhang, Hung Liu, Ed Rossbach and Peter Voulkos.
Celebrating its 80th Anniversary, the Richmond Art Center will present companion exhibitions: David Park: Personal Perspectives, containing works on paper executed from the 1930s through 1960, paired with The Human Spirit: Contemporary Figuration as an Expression of Humanism, tracing the figure as vehicle in multiple media in Bay Area art throughout the ensuing decades.
In conjunction with the exhibitions, the Art Center will offer enlightening public programs including performance, video, music, and a series of talks. Please visit our Events Calendar for more information.
The Spring exhibitions are sponsored by Artists’ Legacy Foundation, Blick Art Materials, Susan and Steven Chamberlin, James Curtis III, Richard Diebenkorn Foundation, Nina and Claude Gruen, Harry W. and Mary Margaret Anderson Charitable Foundation, Jacobs & CO., Oliver and Company, and Zellerbach Family Foundation.
