During the weekends, after the long arduous grind of the work week, I like to explore my city and find what makes it beat. Here in RVA, (Richmond, Virginia) an art renaissance is transpiring, thanks to the influx of youth and a helping hand from DC. This past weekend I hit Cary St, home of mom and pops shops and thrift stores galore. It is truly where some of the most inspired things transpire. One of these things or movements is the Richmond Mural Project. Spearheaded by Art Whino, they have taken select artists to Richmond every year to paint the town. Literally. This past weekend that was Japanese artist MOYA. Known for his wrapping work, he gave the ND&P building it's very first "tattoo" as part of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA) Japanese Tattoo: Perseverance, Art, and Tradition exhibition. The event was live, with music from local Richmond band Cosby (more to come from them later this month), food from local vendor trucks and Triple Crossing Brewing Company. Here are a few photos of my time there.
