Guest Curators

In the months leading up to Collectors’ Night, the Visual Arts Center of Richmond works with some of Richmond’s most passionate art collectors to select the work we’ll auction on the night of the event. Each “guest curator” is paired with an artist who has agreed to contribute work to the event. The guest curator visits the artist’s studio, and together, they decide on the piece that will be included in the auction. Guest curators love the chance to get a behind-the-scenes glimpse at an artist’s studio, and the artists love introducing someone new to their work.
