Collectors’ Night, launched in 1987, is the Visual Arts Center of Richmond’s most significant annual fundraising event. The 300-person gala includes a cocktail reception, a silent auction and a seated live auction. 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—and its contingent of guest curators—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.
In 2017, Collectors’ Night will be Saturday, March 18. Collectors’ Night tickets cost $150 for VisArts members and $175 for the general public and are on sale through March 10. Four- and six-seat reserved tables, with table service during the live auction, are $1,000 and $1,500 respectively. All tickets can be purchased online or by calling (804) 353-0094.
