Gratitude and News
It Was a Rollercoaster End to 2022
- We are so grateful to our community! Despite the devastating loss of three major donors last year, we’re happy to announce that we reached our End-of-Year Appeal fundraising goal and raised over $80,000. Thank you to everyone who contributed!
- On December 23, Rigo 23’s statue of Leonard Peltier—that was previously exhibited at Richmond Art Center—was stolen from a U-haul in Oakland. Thanks to alert community members – extra special thanks to Darby (pictured above) – most of the statue was recovered a few days later.
- We are pleased to announce Richmond Art Center has been awarded a $25,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to support the exhibition Right Here, Right Now. Hooray for funding for Richmond artists!
