The Most Inspiring Art Scenes in America
Fun fact: The first RVA Street Art Festival took place on the Canal Walk in 2012.
Another fun fact: We love the arts! How could we not? Downtown Richmond is home to the Arts District, a stretch of Broad and surrounding streets that has over 15 different galleries and monthly First Friday Art Walks that celebrate the creativity of our city.
If that wasn’t enough, downtown Richmond is also home to countless museums, the Institute of Contemporary Art at VCU, the Richmond Ballet, the Richmond Symphony and events like our own Friday Cheers, Richmond Folk Festival and 2nd Street Festival.
While the arts scene stretches and grows across the region, its home is downtown. And our home of Arts & Culture is one that is diverse, abundant and thriving!
