Yesterday, in Richmond, we held our first community event with the unveiling of the “It’s All About Community” Westhampton mural. The 24-panel mural installation was painted by Richmond muralist and VCU graduate Emily Herr of HerrSuite and features some of the community's favorite spots in the Westhampton neighborhood.
Sunny skies overlooked crisp morning air, friendly faces and warm refreshments from local Westhampton businesses, including Westhampton Bakery and Boyer’s Ice Cream and Coffee.
We’re so excited to have the beautiful artwork sprucing up our construction site. It's our hope that the murals brighten up the days of those driving, walking, running and biking down Patterson Avenue. We’re looking forward to finding the murals a permanent home when the Richmond Chesapeake Bank location opens.
Take a look at some photos from the event below. Tell us about your favorite local Westhampton shop in the comments section for a chance to win a pack of Westhampton notecards.
