Rent Crossroads for your special event!

Update June 2020 - Currently we are not renting out Gallery 2/Rhoda MacCallum Gallery or Classroom Two due to COVID19 restrictions. 

Crossroads Art Center's 25,000 square feet in Richmond's West End is a unique backdrop for a special event. Guests enjoy an artsy, fun atmosphere. Crossroads is perfect for corporate or educational events, birthday celebrations, baby and bridal showers, family reunions, or wedding receptions.

The Rhoda MacCallum Gallery is Crossroads' largest event space at 2,500 square feet and will hold up to 150 guests for a party and 80 for a seated dinner. Classrooms One and Two are spaces that are suitable for smaller events (showers, birthday parties, meetings) during the day or evening. The classrooms can hold up to 100 guests with theater-style seating or 60 guests at tables with chairs. Crossroads also has other areas available, including individual gallery spaces. Staff is happy to assist in designing the best arrangement for events of any size.
