2015 Arts & Culture Xpo

Arts in the Alley joined more than 60 local arts and cultural organizations on Saturday, June 27, at the Science Museum of Virginia in Richmond.

Arts in the Alley RVAXpo 2015This year we had a unique theme for our booth: Words of Encouragement. As visitors entered our booth, we asked that they leave a special note of encouragement for themselves or for the greater metro Richmond area on our Wishing Tree.

Many adults chose to write their words of encouragement or wish on strips of fabric that we hung from the Wishing Tree. Younger visitors drew pictures of their wish on cards that created the bark of the tree. As the day progressed, the Wishing Tree became full of the wishes from the community.

As a fundraising effort, we raffled a custom mural to be painted by one of our muralists, Karol. Throughout the day, we explained our mission to visitors who were not familiar with our programs. It was great to also see many familiar faces who have helped us on past mural projects.

We hope to see you at our next project in October.
