An Update on Reopening RAC
Richmond Art Center is going to sparkle!
“It’s happening! The gradual process of reopening Richmond Art Center will begin this summer. While the bulk of our classes and events remain online for now, plans are in place for a series of small on-site activities starting in July that will pilot our ability to open safely to the general public in early fall,” says RAC’s Executive Director José Rivera.
“The great news is, with dedicated funding from an anonymous donor, we are able to use this transition time to makeover some of our public spaces and galleries. RAC is going sparkle!”
Live Online Soon! Special Event
Flora, Family Ghosts + Resilient Correspondence
Three artists discuss the threads and themes of their work
Online Artists’ Talk: Thursday, June 10, 7-8pm PST
We hope you can join us for a special event bringing together three artists: Shari Arai DeBoer, Manon Wada, Irene Wibawa. While working in different media, scale and modes for investigation, the artists’ work is interconnected through their consideration of family stories, nature and resilience during these challenging times. Note: Due to an unexpected occurrence this event is now happening on Thursday, June 10, 7-8pm (it was previously scheduled for 5/27).
