Join us for a courtyard community party to celebrate Richmond artist Christy Chan‘s new public art project, Inside Out. Artisanal beer and pizzas will be provided by Richmond’s favorite local nano-brewer, Origin Brewer.
About the project: Have something to say? Say it on your city’s walls. Inside Out is a new public art project happening in Richmond. You’re invited to submit phrases that get turned into large-scale, luminous night-time projections on the walls of the Civic Center. Share your funny. Share your weird. Share your sad. Share your truth. In a time when the word “wall” is being used to divide people, Richmond city’s walls are for its people. Your voice matters, and should be seen and heard.
Get ready to see your words light up the city. The projections go live on August 21 and will run through August 25, 8pm to 11pm each night.
How to participate: Submit phrases online at: www.insideoutrichmond.org. Or join your neighbors for a fun phrase-writing workshop and ice-cream social on July 14 at Kaleidescope Coffee (Free, RSVP on website).
Support for Inside Out comes from local community partners: Animated Architecture, the Richmond Art Center, Christy Chan Art & Collaborators, and a Neighborhood Public Art Grant from the Richmond Arts and Culture Commission.
The project is 100% non-profit and is looking for more volunteers to help with events, photography and graphic design.
