InLight Richmond is one of the best art festivals the city has to offer.
InLight Richmond is one of the best art festivals the city has to offer. Not only does it embrace the season, it also lights up the night and takes steps to highlight some of RVA’s best parts of town.
Last year it was the VMFA, the year before it was Monroe Park Campus. This year, InLight heads to Scott’s Addition (map below) to turn the fledgling area into a beacon of nighttime beauty.
It’s something we all probably need right now. Check out details below via 1708 Gallery, who organize the shindig, and we’ll see you all there!
InLight Richmond 2016, 1708 Gallery’s 9th annual exhibition of light-based art and performance is FREE and fun for all ages! Tonight InLight will illuminate the revitalized industrial spaces of Scott’s Addition. For a list of participating artists and other details, visit our InLight 2016 website, HERE.
InLight 2016 will kick off with the Community Lantern Parade, which will travel the length of Clay Street from Altamont Avenue to Roseneath Road. The parade takes off at 7:30 pm from the corner of Altamont Avenue and Clay Street. Join us early to make your own lantern! Lantern making meets at that same corner at 6 pm.
Enjoy food trucks and beverages throughout Scott’s Addition during InLight, including at Ardent Craft Ales, Blue Bee Cider, Buskey Cider, Isley Brewing Company, The Veil Brewing Co., and 1708’s centralized Wine & Beer Garden. Wherever you find artist Paul Shortt’s neon Loiter Here sign, you’ll find delicious fare!
