Arts and culture live here.

Go support, create, and celebrate!


Sunday, June 3, 2018 at 4:00pm to 7:00pm

SPARC’s LIVE ART program is at the leading edge of arts education, integrating performing arts curriculum with special education to create a unique and powerful program for students of all abilities. Each year, the program culminates in an award winning mega-concert, featuring nationally, internationally, and regionally recognized recording artists performing with the LIVE ART students.


Together they take the stage for a night of music, dance, visual art, and human connection for a concert that has become one of Richmond’s favorite annual events!
