Visual Arts Creative Ambassadors Board

The Visual Arts Creative Ambassadors (VACA) is the Visual Arts Center of Richmond’s young professionals group. When individuals under age 30 become members of VisArts, they are automatically enrolled in VACA and are invited to begin attending the group’s special events and programs.

VACA is governed by its own board. Its board members represent both Richmond’s business and artistic communities and are devoted to acting as VisArts’ creative ambassadors in the community.
