VCU Student Art Sale at VCU's School of the Arts Building 

VCU Student Art Sale

For the first time in 25 years, Virginia Commonwealth University art students will hold a cash-and-carry sale of their work. On Saturday, March 31, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., hundreds of pieces, including paintings, prints, ceramics, textiles, jewelry and glass will be on display for the public to view and buy. And what better place to house the event than the 18-month-old School of the Arts Building at 1000 West Broad St.?

John Bryan, assistant dean for development for VCU's School of the Arts, says that in an effort to teach students to create art as a serious intellectual pursuit rather than as a moneymaking venture, the school has not coordinated an event like this in more than two decades. However, VCU's student-run Contemporary Crafts Society took matters into its own hands and organized this event to give students an opportunity to make money, gain exposure, and to give Richmonders the chance to buy original works of art. Students keep all profits from the work they sell.

Two blown-glass door prizes will be awarded that day, and the event will feature music, refreshments and a silent auction showcasing some of the student's best work that attendees may bid on to take home. Call 828-0129 for details.
