Richmond Potluck2.jpg


October 6, 2017 from 5-9pm

The Anderson at VCU and The Richmond Cookbook project present the Richmond Potluck, a citywide potluck and benefit show for Puerto Rico relief.

The potluck will feature homemade food from residents throughout the city, live art and musical performances by CheapGarlic, Drums No Guns, The Sweet Potatoes, and Kenneka Cook. There will also be an open mic led by local poets Mikemetic and Jade Fleming and an art sale by VCUarts students and local artists to raise money for a Puerto Rican relief fund.

This event will also serve as a closing reception for the Anderson’s current exhibition "Reach Out and Touch."
The Anderson will serve as a drop off location for donations for Puerto Rico relief from September 29 through October 9. The gallery is open Tuesday through Friday from 12pm to 7pm and Saturday and Sunday from 12pm to 5 pm. The Anderson address is 907 ½ West Franklin Street.
