The event was hosted by artist Patricia Patterson, and featured live artist talks, vintage video interviews, and tributes to the folk – past, present and future – who make Art of the African Diaspora possible.

Let’s Do Art for Lunch

Online guided drawing session with Lauren Ari!
With special guest Richmond Art Center’s executive director José Rivera!

On Friday, March 5, 12:30pm, artist Lauren Ari led an online session for drawing and relaxation. And her special guest was Richmond Art Center’s executive director José Rivera!

José started at Richmond Art Center at the end of summer 2020, but the covid pandemic has prevented folks from gathering in-person to meet him. So we hosted this event as a virtual meet and greet.

A small group of students and staff joined Lauren and José in Zoom, while a much larger group participated via a Youtube livestream.
