RVA Community Makers marks its 5th anniversary as a public art project that brings together local artists and the community to honor individuals who have positively impacted the Metro Richmond Community in support of Black History Month. The 2023 honorees are individuals who advocate for a cause; amplify a just point of view; and/or use the power of storytelling, oration, and imagery to positively impact change for their community—educationally, culturally, and artistically. Inspired by VMFA’s exhibition Isaac Julien: Lessons of the Hour—Frederick Douglass, this year’s artistic focus is video storytelling. Join us for a brief in-person program featuring the three honorees, artist Hamilton Glass, and the unveiling of the video shorts installation by artist Myles Brown.
Free, no tickets or registration required.
