Project Description

Mission: To be a Catalyst in Richmond through learning and living art.
Vision: Driven by a commitment to our community, the Richmond Art Center is a participatory space that seeks to equitably grow and sustain innovative art practices in Richmond and beyond.

The Richmond Art Center (RAC) is a membership-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit, arts organization founded in 1936 by artist/educator Hazel Salmi who traveled throughout Richmond teaching art to all who wished to participate. The RAC moved into its current 25,000 sq. ft. facility as part of the City of Richmond’s Civic Center Plaza in 1951.

The largest Art Center in the East Bay, the RAC provides a pathway for lifelong arts learning for people of all ages. While the Art Center draws visitors, artists and students from throughout the greater Bay Area, it predominantly serves the residents of Richmond. The Art Center accomplishes its mission through 3 primary programs: Exhibitions, Studio Art and Art in the Community.
