Public Art Program in Richmond
The City of Richmond is home to over 30 works of public art. The Public Art Program emphasizes and encourages community involvement and participation in all of its activities.
These collaborations have resulted in a number of innovative ventures, including:
- A "mini-grant" program, which awarded grants to community organizations for performing and visual arts activities.
- Annual technical assistance workshops for artists which help to advance their knowledge of, and skills in, public art.
