RVA STREET ART FESTIVAL IS BACK.

MANCHESTER, APRIL 22-24, 2016

HEADQUARTERED AT the iconic Southern States Silos AND BRINGING NEW COLOR TO THE MANCHESTER NEIGHBORHOOD.
A THREE-DAY CELEBRATION OF ALL THINGS Richmond.

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.

The 3-day festival will feature local food, brews, music, an artisan market, steamroll printing by Studio Two Three, and revitalize an undiscovered portion of James River Public Parks. We are working with RVA community organizers to educate festival-goers on the history of the Richmond Slave Trail, which runs alongside the silos site. We are also working alongside the Earth Day Festival in Manchester to bring life and excitement to this up-and-coming area of Richmond.

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO

Simply put—the arts help students develop the thinking, social, and motivational skills needed for success in school, work, and life. Our beneficiaries help our young people discover the arts and make our city a better place to live and work.

ART 180 gives young people the chance to express themselves through art, and to share their stories with others.

Art on Wheels brings comprehensive arts programming to communities with limited access to the arts.

Studio Two Three makes [art] work for Richmond through studio access, education, and exhibitions.
