    1. Reflecions: Celebrating 50 years of Creativity at The Visual Arts Center of Richmond
      1:00 am – 1:00 am

      Founded in 1963, the Visual Arts Center of Richmond celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2013. In honor of this important milestone, our Reflections exhibition presents a living portrait of our community art center. Led by master printmaker, Bill Fick, a team of volunteer artists worked for five months to create a 2,500-square-foot screen-printed collage of the people, places, key moments, and artist’s materials that have shaped our 50-year history. Layered and colorful, the installation includes thousands of images that connect our founding days in Church Hill to our current community at 1812 West Main Street.
