The goal of the RVA Street Art Festival was to show the creative power of street art, liven up an otherwise drab floodwall, and attract people and tourists to an outdoor art gallery showcasing the Canal Walk and Shockoe Bottom neighborhood.
RVA Street Art Festival had an amazing lineup: Hense, El Kamino, Hamilton Glass, Heidi Trepanier, Brad Bacon, Dalek, Jeff Soto, Jiha Moon, Mark Jenkins, Ryan McGinnis, Chris Milk, Mickael Broth, Susann Whittier, VIZIE, Nick Kusyk, POSE, Richard Coleman, and Ed Trask.
Local celebrity artist Ed Trask and VMFA & city representative Jon Bailes put together a great program featuring a collection of local, national and international muralists. It was truly unbelievable to have this come to town, and we can't be more excited for next years showing.
