Greenway Film Screening and Q&A with filmmaker Jed Lee

Thursday, May 11, 6:30pm-8pm (Gallery Walkthrough with Tanja Geis starts at 5:30pm)

Richmond Art Center, 2540 Barrett Avenue, Richmond, CA


It’s a revolutionary Rich City! Come hear the full story of the Richmond Greenway! The feature “Greenway” by documentary filmmaker Jed Lee weaves together the enriching tale of how a once abandoned and dangerous railroad line is now a beautiful stretch of walking path decorated on each side with gardens, murals, and parks. Hear from current Richmond community leaders about how this transformation was 100% fought for and by the community.

This event is free, open to all and no rsvp is necessary. Immediately proceeding the film screening at 5:30pm will be a gallery walkthrough with artist Tanja Geis of her new solo exhibition. Come early and enjoy both these events from The Greenhouse exhibition and speaker series.
