In addition to the block party with a mobile mural, music by WRIR Djs, activities for kids, raffle drawings, and great food and drink at Joe's Inn, we will be holding a Bizarre Market. Artists and crafters from around the Richmond region will be displaying their great work up and down the block, offering you the best in local, handcrafted work. If you are an artist with something to sell, we welcome you to set up at 11 am. It is free to set up, but we ask that you donate 10% of your sales to ART 180.
Spread the word! This will be a great block party and will ensure the continued success of ART 180!
