    Visit the Richard L. Nelson Gallery at UC Davis

    To kick off your Valentine’s Day holiday the right way, you can take the cultured approach and show the love of your life that you really care about things like the arts. By taking somebody you care about to this amazing art gallery, you will prove that you’re more than just some average Joe or Jane that doesn’t have any culture in his or her life.

    The most exciting thing about the Richard L. Nelson Gallery at UC Davis is that they host an event every year on Valentine’s Day called The Artist’s Valentine. So not only will you get to see the amazing pieces of art in this wonderful gallery, you’ll also get an extra special treat and an opportunity to experience the beautiful Valentines themed art on display.

    Not only that, the gallery also auctions off the Valentine’s themed artwork currently on exhibit during their Valentine’s Day extravaganza.

    It gets even better for those who are on a tight budget, because this event begins at 7 PM on Valentine’s Day and admission is free. So you could actually take your love to a special event without spending a single penny. This is good because you could spend more money for dinner and drinks later on in the evening.
