It is our pleasure to have you participate in the VCUarts National Portfolio Day in Richmond, Virginia. This is where you will find all of the information you need to make sure your visit is smooth and the event is beneficial to you.

Timing and Location

Reviews will begin at 1:00pm and will conclude at 5:00pm.  Please be respectful of this timeframe, as VCUarts believes that adhering to the National Portfolio Day Association guidelines creates a fair environment for all representatives.

It is the responsibility of the representatives to be aware of the length of lines and to manage the duration of each review.  VCUarts staff will be assisting with the management of long lines to make sure they are not blocking hallways, bathrooms or access to exits.

Representative check in locations will be either in the Fine Arts Building located at 1000 West Broad Street or the Depot at 814 West Broad Street in Richmond, VA.  Please click here to see where you will be located.
