Richmond is home to a vibrant arts scene with many theatres, museums, galleries, performance venues, and the University’s own Modlin Center for the Arts. In addition to participating in RVA First Fridays, UR Downtown hosts dinners in advance of selected downtown performances for University of Richmond students. A special guest introduces each evening's program at dinner. Transportation is provided from campus, and registration is required. Performance tickets will be purchased for students in advance.
