Day Three of Art Bank: See Something Extraordinary
We take pride in offering captivating slices of art history, art present, and art future: all in one visionary space at the Richmond Art Center, for free. Our Exhibitions Program presents between 14 and 16 exhibitions annually, covering an exciting, diverse range of artistic talents. From collections featuring the legendary Richard Diebenkorn, to beloved painter David Park, to the evocative Mildred Howard, to our local West Contra Costa Unified School District students… our driving focus is to make art accessible, interesting, and alive to our visitors. Curated by Exhibitions Director Jan Wurm, our galleries welcome over 14,500 visitors each year, with this number growing every day as more community members discover us as an important arts resource.
Most importantly, we want to keep these gallery spaces free and open to the public so that everyone has access to powerful art history in the making. We strive to offer free programming to both complement and enhance the exhibitions, like drawing workshops and music performances, and our acclaimed artists talks. The Richmond Art Center needs your support to maintain our nationally recognized exhibitions and to continue building a vital arts resource in our own community.
This is the third day of our weeklong fundraiser and we’re still working towards meeting our matching grant of $2,000, provided by a generous anonymous donor! Help us reach our week’s goal of $5,000 by giving today.
