80th Anniversary Gala!

October 1, 2016, 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

This year the Richmond Art Center turns 80! We’re planning a fun-filled event to celebrate the Art Center’s remarkable growth over the past four years and to honor our past, our present and our exciting future.

Tickets for this event go on sale on August 15, online via our website, so mark your calendar.

The night’s events include special guest Ryan Coogler, Sundance Film Festival winner and critically acclaimed director and screenwriter.

Coogler’s Fruitvale Station and Creed have captured film industry awards, and his upcoming movie, Black Panther, will bring Marvel comic book’s iconic hero to the screen. Born in Oakland, Ryan Coogler grew up in Richmond. His love of filmmaking began at Sacramento State University; he went on to earn an MFA degree from USC’s School of Cinematic Arts.

  • Enjoy a wonderful dinner catered by Richmond’s own Salute e Vita Ristorante
  • Relax to the music of Blues and Soul vocalist Terrie Odabi
  • Purchase exceptional art or a one-of-a-kind experiences at our live auction

Early Bird pricing for tickets are $135 per seat and begin August 15 until September 5 (or are sold out). After September 6th, the price of a gala ticket will increase to $150.

Proceeds will benefit the Richmond Art Center’s award-winning programs. Our Fund-A-Need will benefit the Kato Jaworski Youth Scholarship Fund. We hope you’ll join us.
