Love in the time of COVID can be challenging, especially when it comes to dating. Thankfully, the Richmond Art Center’s (RAC) latest online event, “Date Night,” is making it a little easier.

Set for Thurs., July 23 from 7-8:30 p.m. and hosted by artist Vida Vasquez, Date Night is an online meet-up space where couples and friends can socialize while creating art.

“Looking for a cute virtual activity to do with your boo, date or homie?” asked Vazquez. “Then come to Date Night! Unwind, mingle and get creative.”

With an eye toward pandemic-stricken pocketbooks, Date Night is offered by the RAC on a sliding scale/pay-what-you-can basis. Registration is available via Eventbrite, at which point participants can access the Zoom link and a short list of art materials easily found at home. To register, click here.
