From Art Whino:
Art Whino returns to Richmond, VA for the Fourth installment of the Richmond Mural Project. With over 60 murals since the inception of the project, Art Whino will return bringing another 10 muralists for another round of murals. Entering the fourth year we have reached many milestones and the project has brought worldwide attention to Richmond, VA as a destination for Mural Lovers worldwide. Expanding on the body of murals we will be curating a dynamic range of styles and subject matter providing a glimpse into a worldwide movement in one city. In response to people’s requests to expand the murals beyond the arts district we will be implementing kickstarters for specific neighborhoods to allow for the organic growth of the project as people rally together to dictate where the murals go.
