Skye Zentz, Martha Vann and I visited the G40 Mural Project sites in Richmond this summer.

Visit Art Whino for more information about the G40 Mural Project in Richmond, VA.

“Art Whino returns in 2012 for the Third edition of G40. Following the mission of G40s past, we will once again bring exposure to low brow’s many faces and, as always, present what new facets emerge within this ever growing movement.  This year G40 focuses on the “Art of the Mural”.  In the last 5 years, there have been great bursts of street artists transforming the city’s urban fabric with large scale mural artwork. With their powerful and awe evoking size, these murals transform the landscape of the passerby and create a unique experience to each wall that was once blank and artless.

This year’s G40 will travel to Richmond, VA. and will become the inaugural opening event of the city’s soon to be announced official art district. By inviting 12 of the top mural artists from around the globe to unleash their creativity to 20 large scale walls throughout Richmond, this project is sure to put the city on the map as a street art destination. In addition to the large scale murals, we will also present an exhibit in pop up galleries along the main street of the district. With canvas work and installations by each mural artist, these shows will offer the opportunity to experience a more personal scale and a closer look at the execution and detailing of the mural artists’ work.”

My dad passed away on September 25, 2018. Missing him today and hoping that his spirit is connected to all of the positive particles in the universe and filled with love and light. I think the most important thing that I learned from my dad is that it’s okay to be weird. If there is a lesson for me to pass on it would be to always reach out to those around you, and communicate, tell your friends and family how you feel even if it’s confusing and might not make a lot of sense. And hug people more. And tell them that you love them. ❤️❤️❤️
