Annual RVA Street Art FestManchester April 22-24th
"The RVA Street Art Festival showcases amazing local and national artistic talent and revitalizes communities in need of some color and creativity.
The focus of the RVA Street Art Fest three-fold: supporting youth art education, discovering local talent, and bringing life to our beautiful city.
Watch art come to life when the RVA Street Art Festival returns April 22-24, 2016. This year, we will bring new life to the iconic Southern States Silos site, overlooking the James River and the Richmond skyline. Headquartered at the silos, the Festival will span the Manchester neighborhood, splashing color and life on historic buildings."
