Art on Wheels is working with Studio Two Three to create the World’s Largest Collagraph- composed of clothing, which represents someone who fought cancer. A collagraph is a print that is made with various materials that you wouldn’t traditionally consider to be used in print making. In this case it’s clothing.

To Honor loved ones in our community, We will be using clothing to represent each honoree.

The clothing will be made into a printmaking plate and be printed on one piece of fabric using a steamroller.

How to Register a Loved One
Gather an Outfit. Make sure it is a complete outfit (ie pants and shirt). The outfit does not have to be the honoree’s actual clothing, just represent them.
Bring outfit to one of the Registration Sites along with a completed registration form and a $25 registration fee.
We have a maximum of 300 honoree’s to be included in the World Record. Don’t delay make your submission today!
Note: Outfits will be destroyed in the printing process and will not be returned
July 31st: Deadline to Register

This Saturday Diversity Thrift along with other community organizations is helping out with a One Stop Submission Day:

Field Day RVA, a community fundraising event for the nonprofit organization Higher Achievement, presented by BrownGreer, is set to take place on Saturday, May 14, 2022 at 11 a.m. The event took a two-year pause due to the pandemic and has returned to the Richmond community this year.

The day-long event takes place at the Bon Secours Training Center, formerly known as the Washington Redskins Training Camp, located at 2401 West Leigh Street. Teams of five to nine people register to compete in field day events, including water balloon toss, relay races, capture the flag, corn hole, and tug of war, as well as enjoy prizes, music, beer, and food trucks. Previous years have been in attendance by Mayor Levar Stoney, Dominion Energy, ABC News teams, and community members all throughout Richmond.

“We were disappointed when our 2020 and 2021 events had to be postponed, but could not be more thrilled to be back this year. Higher Achievement Richmond has profound impacts on the middle school scholars within Richmond, and this event is a great way to support our mission,” said Katey Comerford, Executive Director for Higher Achievement Richmond.

To attend Field Day RVA 2022, individuals can register at fielddayrva.eventbrite.com.
