Young + Artful

This year, Young + Artful will be held on August 25, 2018 from 8 to 11 p.m. at the Visual Arts Center of Richmond.

Throw on a leather jacket, rip holes in your denim and skip class with a cool crowd of young Richmond art lovers. The Visual Arts Creative Ambassadors (VACA) present Young + Artful 2018: Rock + Roll High School.

Inspired by punk rock from the 1970s and 80s, the event includes:

  • a bar stocked with local drink selections
  • a silent art auction of pieces by emerging and established Virginia artists with competitive pricing for young collectors
  • live art demos
  • a spread of tasty food from Richmond restaurants (not your average cafeteria fare)
  • tunes from Ramones tribute band Good Cretins
  • vinyl spun by DJ Devolved (Vinyl Conflict Record Store)

Tickets are $60 and include food and beverages. Become a VisArts member and you can buy tickets for $50!

This is the only version of summer school you’d invite your friends to and it’s all for a good cause. Young + Artful proceeds support VisArts’ education programs. Mark your calendar for the event that brought home the bronze in Style Weekly’s ‘Best Annual Benefit Gala’ category in the 2017 ‘Best of Richmond’ readers’ choice poll.
