9:00 am - 3:00 pm
T Tyler Potterfield Memorial Bridge
This urban hike has become an annual CVT tradition! Join us as we explore many of the murals in the city. This hike will be to view the easternmost 5 murals created through Mending Walls RVA that were not included in the October 24, 2020 Mural Hike. This hike will include Manchester, Church Hill, the East End, Brown’s Island, and Downtown.
The Richmond Mural Project was a yearly event that created over 100 murals all over Richmond by world renowned talent between 2012 and 2016. This year will feature Mending Walls RVA (https://mendingwallsrva.com/) , a public art project that brings together artists from different cultures and backgrounds.
Please note this will be a long hike! Please do not sign up if you are unable to walk for 6-7 miles or if you have afternoon plans at a particular time. If you are bringing a friend make sure they are registered so that we do not exceed the max group size. Make sure you are registered on Eventbrite as that is what will be used as the RSVP list. We will try to find restroom stops along the way if necessary but be prepared to patronize a business by buying a cup of coffee, etc. in order to use their restroom.
