Collectors' Night: Together Apart
will take place on Saturday, March 20, 2021

Collectors' Night, launched in 1987, is the Visual Arts Center of Richmond's most significant annual fundraising event. Approximately 350 people attend the ticketed event, which includes a live and silent auction. Guests bid on works of art and experience packages. Given the uncertainty of the timeline of the COVID-19 pandemic and with the health and safety of our community in mind, Collectors' Night is going virtual in 2021. All artwork will be available for viewing in the True F. Luck Gallery beginning March 1. Proceeds from the event support VisArts' outreach programs but altruism isn't the only reason art collectors come back to this event year after year.


The Visual Arts Center of Richmond works with some of Richmond's most beloved artists, and the result is an art auction that's chockfull of pieces that are crying out to be taken home and enjoyed for generations to come.
