The folks tasked with reinvigorating Richmond’s downtown corridor have found a great way to make use of empty storefronts.
This week, the latest Art in Windows exhibition is being installed at three separate locations in downtown.
Art has already been set up behind the windows of an empty space at 400 Marina Way, and also at the Richmond Main Street Initiative (RMSI) headquarters at 1015 Nevin Ave. A third site with be set up with art Friday morning.
Once all the art is in place, on Thursday, April 7, an opening reception, art walk and mixer will be held from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at 1015 Nevin Ave., where community members can meet the artists, take a stroll downtown to view the exhibits and enjoy light refreshments and a no-host wine bar.
The art walk departs from the Richmond Main Street Office (entrance at 402 Harbour Way) at 4:45 p.m. and returns at 5:30 p.m. for more mingling and refreshments.
The exhibition features works of photography by Josue Hernandez, Saida Hogan Nassirruddin, with Marni Temple, Carnell Rogers & Robert Ellison from Elders Learning Community.
“For the very first time the show features photographs, all by Richmond artists,” RMSI Outreach Coordinator Alicia Gallo said.
Here’s the link for the web listing for the reception.
RMSI and the Richmond Arts & Culture Commission are presenting the exhibition, with support from Abdo Nasser and St. Raphaels The Archangel’s Chapel.
