The City of Richmond Public Art Program is committed to contributing to the cultural health and well-being of the community, now and in the future. By placing artwork in our everyday environment, the Public Art Program sparks community participation in the building of our public spaces; offers public access to ideas generated by contemporary art; provides opportunities to support local artists; encourages citizens to take pride in public cultural expression; and creates a forum to address relevant themes and issues.
Walk Richmond and Public Art Tours
Richmond Public Art and Walk Richmond have joined forces to promote healthy living and awareness of public art. Walk Richmond hosts a walking group with free group walks throughout the year. On certain routes, Public Art staff joins the walk to conduct an accompanying art tour.
