About

Art Whino, returns to Richmond, VA to continue with last year’s greatly successful Richmond Mural Project. Art Whino will curate another edition of murals with ten of the top muralists from around the world.  This second project will build on the twenty three previously created murals and will add another twenty throughout the city, bringing the number of murals to forty three upon completion.

The Richmond Mural Project is a yearly event with the mission of creating over 100 murals by world renowned talent in the first 5 years alone. The recurrence and solidification of the project throughout this time will establish Richmond as a landmark destination for internationally recognized murals and will create exposure for the city, establishing it as a premier destination for mural art in the US.

HOW YOU CAN HELP!

We have secured funding to bring 5 artists with your help we will be able to increase the line up to 10 muralists and if we surpass our goal we will be able to increase the number of muralists beyond our initial goal of 10.

43 Large Scale Murals Throughout The City of Richmond by the end of this year!

RICHMOND MURAL PROJECT MISSION:

The main mission of the Richmond Mural Project is to make Richmond the top destination for Murals in the United States.  By concentrating a large number of murals throughout the city the project will increase tourism and will bring the much needed “Feet on the Street” which will help local business thrive.  Along with this mission there are many additional benefits that these murals will bring to the city of Richmond.  These murals will serve as positive catalysts for change by specifically placing them in areas that are in disrepair. These environments include neighborhoods with abandoned buildings and low foot traffic, areas with high crime, and newly developed areas in need of identity.

“Feet on the Street” will help local business thrive

Richmond will be the top destination for Murals in the United States
