The RVA Street Art Festival will bring together more than a dozen national street artists to create an outdoor gallery along Richmond's James River Power Plant Building and Floodwall.
The festival's goal is to show the creative power of street art, liven up an other wise drab floodwall, and attract people and tourists to the outdoor art gallery that will showcase the Canal Walk and Shockoe Bottom neighborhood.
The festival will begin Thursday, April 12 with an event at the VMFA (6:30-8pm) with artists on stage discussing their work and the work of the collaboration.
Ed Trask will emcee the event and lead the panel of artists on a visual and vocal tour of the artists beginnings as street artists and their rise in the art world to boardrooms and exhibits and openings in cities all over the world from London to Bangkok.
The audience will be also have the opportunity to engage in a Q&A session with the artists and learn and explore even more.
Come early and enjoy the VMFA or dine at Best Cafe or Amuse restaurant before the event.
Don't miss this once in a lifetime chance to engage all these artists on one stage!
