About this project

Art Whino returns to Richmond, VA for the third installment of the Richmond Mural Project. After completing 48 murals during the last edition of the mural project, Art Whino will work with eight to twelve of the top muralists from around the world to curate another round of murals. Last year brought an incredible amount of press coverage and the murals made it on top lists such as Buzzfeed, which ranked the Etam Cru mural #3 Best Street art in the world of 2013. Bringing Richmond a sampling of the great variety of mural work worldwide, just as in past years, the selection of artists will feature a dynamic range of styles and subject matter which creates a unique experience for visitors, providing a glimpse into a worldwide movement in one city. The creation of another 20 murals this year will bring the number to over 68 throughout the city, further establishing the Richmond Mural Project. This edition will continue to build Richmond’s reputation as a go to destination for murals that incite exploration of the city through weekend visits that result in the discovery of the city Richmond itself, with its neighborhoods, businesses, and culture, as visitors hunt for the next mural.


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.  The current money goal set is per Muralist.  Double it and we can bring two more muralist.  Triple it and we can bring three and so forth!

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

RICHMOND MURAL PROJECT MISSION:

MISSION: The Richmond Mural Project is a yearly event with the goal of creating over 100 murals by world renown 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 art destination. 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
