The RVA Street Art Festival and The Liar
Beginning tomorrow, April 12, 2012, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA) will present a exhibition of a dozen national street artists along Richmond’s James River Power Plant Building and Floodwall. The medium is 18’ x 32’ foot murals intended to demonstrate the creative power of street art. The festival begins on Thursday at 6:30 PM with a discussion by the artists of their work. Spectators will flock to see the new works Friday – Sunday. Saturday, there is a festival with food and drinks and a Bizarre Market. Artist work sessions and interaction are some of the highlights of the festival. Sunday has been declared Family Day, and children’s activities will complement the other offerings.
