Milk River Arts provides integrated career-focused support for artists with special needs through professional studio practice and exhibition opportunities.



W H A T   I N S P I R E S   A R T I S T S ?

Milk River Arts and the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts first partnered to focus on this simple but exciting question: “What inspires artists?” Our October 2015 Pop-up Workshops took place at the VMFA Pauley Center, and were a fantastic success. Many thanks to the VMFA staff, Milk River Arts artists, family and friends that made the event so memorable. Now we are ecstatic to hold regular Milk River Arts studio sessions at the VMFA and the Visual Arts Center of Richmond. Check out our “Up Next” tab (to the right>) for current dates and times.
