Collectors’ Night

The Visual Arts Center of Richmond hosted its 34th Annual Collectors’ Night on March 7, 2020 from 6-10 p.m.

At Collectors’ Night, guests enjoy a cocktail reception, silent auction and seated live auction. All proceeds from Collectors’ Night benefit VisArts. Each year, VisArts recognizes a longtime friend with the Distinguished Service Award. The recipient is an individual who has demonstrated a sustained and extraordinary commitment to the organization. The 2020 Distinguished Service Award recipients are Bill and Pam Royall.

History of the Event: Collectors’ Night, launched in 1987, is the Visual Arts Center of Richmond’s most significant annual fundraising event. The 350-person gala is held in every March and includes a cocktail reception, a silent auction and a seated live auction. Proceeds from the event support VisArts’ outreach programs. VisArts—and its contingent of guest curators—works with some of Richmond’s most beloved artists, and the result is an art auction that’s full of local artwork.
