A fall art exhibition leading up to the U.S. presidential election looks to underscore the importance of one person’s vote, as seen through the lens of Richmond artists.

“Bridge the Ballot” will be both a live and virtual art exhibition from Mon., Sept. 14 through Mon., Nov. 9, 2020 at Bridge Storage and ArtSpace, 23 Maine Ave. in Richmond. The community will be able to view the artists’ works both at Bridge’s onsite art gallery and online during that time. A virtual art reception will also be held Fri., Sept., 25.

According to Bridge the Ballot Curator Jenny Balisle, “2020 will be a crucial presidential election amplifying the responsibility of one’s vote. Bridge the Ballot connects the personal experience with issues important to Richmond artists. The exhibition goes beyond super PACs and propaganda back to the people.”

In addition to Balisle, the art exhibition will feature the works of Tiffany Conway, Rebeca Garcia-Gonzalez, A’aron Heard, Tatiana Ortiz, Robin D. López, Richard Muro Salazaar, Malik Seneferu, Tony Tamayo and Irene Wibawa.

Virtual artist talks will be available for viewing on the following Fridays: Oct. 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30. To stay updated on the Bridge the Ballot art exhibition, including relevant viewing info, click here.
