The first full week of the month not only brings promises of a fresh start but also RVA First Fridays, Richmond’s monthly artwalk event.
With so many different mediums to choose from, Richmonders can expect to be entertained by all of the food, art, music, and more that the city has to offer. With summer in full swing, RVA Mag has selected just a few of the many offerings that First Friday has in store:
“Sweet Dreams and Goals and Objectives and Demands” at Gallery5
Jamie Brew, head writer of Clickhole, is lighting up the walls of Gallery 5 with a ‘predictive text emulator,’ which will dazzle the gallery with images, color, words, music, and more.
“This exhibition features various pieces of writing created using a computer program I wrote that first ingests a text or collection of texts, then uses the source material’s basic word sequence patterns to supply the writer (me) with suggestions for words,” said Brew. The exhibition will run the entire month of July.
Markets at Monroe
The locally-crafted market will return to the corner of Broad and Monroe. Stop by to pick up beautiful, local trinkets while strolling through the art walk.

“Heathers: The Musical” from TheatreLAB and Firehouse
After recently announcing an extended run, TheatreLAB and Firehouse’s co-production of Heathers The Musical will continue to rock the Richmond theatre scene. Tickets are available for purchase here. Check out our past article about the show on GayRVA here.
