Local Art Contest to Highlight James River

May 27, 2016 · 0 minute read

RVA loves the James River! We depend on it for drinking water, recreation, and inspiration. It is so important to us that Richmond was designated “Best River Town Ever” by Outside Magazine in 2012. To build on this unique designation and continue to promote the James River as the single most important attraction and natural resource in the Richmond region, the James River Association organized the Regional River Feature Contest encouraging residents to identify or create an iconic regional river feature (or features) that symbolizes, creates an identity for, and celebrates the rivers of the Richmond region.

A committee reviewed the submissions and two finalists were selected: Storm Drain Murals and Bridge Uplighting. Voting begins today and will remain open through June 12th. The submission that receives the most votes will be implemented throughout the Richmond Region!

Editors note: Bridge uplighting idea by Terrain360.com? Hey, that’s our sister company! And while we’d love it if you voted for our sweet concept, we think Andrea Orlosky’s storm drain mural project is worthy as well. Whatever you do, click this link and vote!
