Get your $20 ticket on Eventbrite.

Come for a tour of Richmond’s own historic Byrd Park Pump House and listen to Edgar Allan Poe’s greatest works being read by an Edgar Allan Poe actor! This historic building, and its open air ballroom, offers the perfect venue and environment to hear Edgar Allan Poe’s greatest works.

Details:

From 4:00-7:00 PM on October 23rd we are offering 3 one-hour long sessions, starting on the hour at 4:00, 5:00, & 6:00. Please arrive at the front doors of the Pump House a few minutes early to sign in with an event volunteer.

These one hour sessions will include a history tour of the Pump House and readings of Edgar Allan Poe’s work.

We are limiting tours to 20 people and we will be taking measures to keep visitors safe while inside the building.

  • As always, we require hard hats while inside the building, which will be provided as well as sanitized after each use.
  • As a Covid-19 response this event requires visitors to wear masks at all times, hand sanitizing, and social distancing where possible.
  • The building is not ADA accessible and those with mobility impairments may find some sections of the Pump House difficult to maneuver. Please reach out any further information or questions.
  • Kids are welcome, but are recommended to stay near an adult during the tour.
  • And as much as we love animals, the Pump House is not a safe place for them and they are not permitted, other than service animals.

Mending Walls Artwork Stolen

Stealing this art makes no sense and just seems to be a hurtful act.

Published

on

Spotted on the Mending Walls Facebook.

Mending Walls has been about bringing people together through creative means. It is baffling that someone would try to silence this conversation.

Our purpose is to inspire empathy and connection. We were very excited to invite you all to see the final display created by the wonderful local artist who we’ve been highlighting over the last couple of weeks in collaboration with St. Paul’s Episcopal Church (Richmond, VA)

The art was installed on November 17th and by the morning of the 18th artwork work was missing without a trace.

Events like this assures us that our work and purpose is causing change.

“If your voice had no power, they would not try to silence you.”

Mending Walls is a public art project that brings together public artists from different cultures and backgrounds to create murals that address where we are now in society and how we can move forward through understanding and collaboration. They’re responsible for many of the iconic murals you see in town.
