The Richmond Art Center is proud of its history hosting the West Contra Costa County Unified School District (WCCUSD) Annual Student Art Show, a tradition now in its 49th year. The exhibition features original creative works by hundreds of middle and high school students in photography, ceramics, sculpture, mixed media, collage, painting and drawing. For most of these students, this will be their first professional exhibition. Through April 25, 2014.
20 teen photojournalists from Richmond-area high schools worked with The American Teenager Project to document the personal stories of young people in Richmond. This exhibition showcases 100 black-and-white portraits and in-depth audio interviews alongside the premiere of The American Teenager Project’s It’s Complicated Gallery (the traveling exhibition of photographer Robin Bowman’s portraits and interviews with American teens).
