Artists to make floodwall their canvas in RVA Street Art Festival


RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Artists will make the floodwall on Dock Street the largest canvas the RVA Street Art Festival has ever seen. The festival will have its fifth edition in April 2020.

“I would like the floodwall to be something beautiful that tells the story of a little bit of Richmond and why the floodwall is here,” said Ed Trask, the RVA Street Art Festival co-founder. “I want it to be something that’s iconic to the city. I would love for it to be something that inspires another generation of muralists and artists to do something this big. The hope is that it inspires some sort of creative change.”
