Event description

Description

New this year, FREE, and open to the public, DJ Lonnie B kicks-off the festival week at the 2nd Street Festival’s poster unveiling event! Food and beverages will be available for purchase.

We are proud to celebrate artist and native Richmonder, Sone-Seeré Burrell, the first female artist commissioned for the 2nd Street Festival’s original poster art. Her work will be unveiled at the event on Sept. 28, and will be sold both at the event and during the festival.

Burrell often has each of her creative fingers in a different artistic venture, and from an early age she felt a strong connection with creative expression. Majoring in Graphic Design & Technology, she graduated summa cum laude from North Carolina A&T State University. Burrell currently works as an art therapist at Henrico Doctors’ Hospital and at a youth residential treatment facility. Her passion for the arts and mental health fuels her drive to share the healing power of the expressive arts with others. Whether she’s exploring through her own art process, recording her painting through videos set to music, hosting paint parties, leading therapeutic painting classes, or providing creative outlets for expression with teenagers, the art process is central to her life.
