“The most interesting arts attraction in Richmond has become the city itself,” Departures Magazine described the thriving RVA arts scene after naming our city one of “The Most Inspiring Art Cities in America.”
Accessible and aesthetically pleasing, downtown Richmond’s art galleries offer visitors an intimate look at RVA’s community-focused and thought-provoking arts scene. Art is everywhere when you visit downtown Richmond, but our list of art galleries in downtown Richmond makes for a great place to start.
The Arts District is the heart and home to RVA’s arts and culture bringing together the best elements of Richmond creativity and cultural institutions like art galleries, co-working spaces and social clubs, theatres and more. Walk along, or around, Broad Street and you’ll find galleries, street art, small businesses, boutiques and more. Monthly events like RVA First Fridays and creative spaces make it a great place for work and play.
