A Message from RAC’s Executive Director

Hello Friends,

Sunny weather is coming and we have a couple of “not to be missed” events at Richmond Art Center this season. First, it’s Spring Family Day. This time, this free event will celebrate advocacy for environmental justice through art-making. And then in April, it’s the West Contra Costa Unified School District Student Art Show. It always astonishes me to see the incredible artistic talent of local middle and high school students. And this year marks the 57th year of the exhibition.

Meanwhile, a new and exciting class is launching: blacksmithing! It will be held in the courtyard to keep everyone safe (and no need to carry your own anvil!)

Finally, a few weeks ago we were happy to welcome to Richmond Art Center Tony Tamayo, Chief of Staff to Richmond’s Mayor and B.K. White, Public Policy Director in the Office of the Mayor. Tony and BK toured our facilities and we talked about upcoming events and how the Office of the Mayor can assist RAC in its efforts. We are so appreciative that the Mayor’s Office visited us during their busy transition time. We look forward to a great relationship with them.

Stay warm and I hope to welcome you at RAC soon.
