Celebrating 50 Years of Creativity at the Visual Arts Center of Richmond
November 1, 2013 – January 2014
Founded in 1963, the Visual Arts Center of Richmond celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2013. In honor of this important milestone, we installed a monumental, living portrait of our community art center. Led by master printmaker Bill Fick, a team of volunteer artists worked for five months to create a 2,500-square-foot screen-printed collage of the people, places, key moments and artist’s materials that have shaped our 50-year history. Layered and colorful, the installation included thousands of images that connect our founding days in Church Hill to our current community at 1812 West Main Street.
Reflections continued to evolve throughout the run of the exhibition, as 50 new prints are added to the walls each week through a unique vertical screen-printing process.
