Graffiti clean up along the James

March 5, 2012 · 0 minute read

The never ending war against graffiti in the James River Park continues this weekend. On Saturday, the Friends of the James River Park are organizing a graffiti paint-over session at the south base of the Manchester Bridge. You’ll find the information to participate below. A personal plea: Unless your name is Banksy (or even Hansky), save your spray paint for your own property.

Now that's art.

Call for volunteers. A few of Richmond’s creative types are taking liberty with the surroundings and spray painting graffiti onto the piers of the Manchester Bridge. Come and join us this Saturday, March 10 at 9:30am as we return these areas to a more natural appearance. After we finish painting, we’ll have a free tour of the Slave Trail, which starts at 2 p.m. This clean-up will involve a hike, picking up and carrying trash, and painting, as well as offering great views of the river and city. You know the drill, wear appropriate clothes, shoes and gloves.
