You might have seen my post on Instagram several days ago, which contained a teaser to a video for one of Richmond's newest projects, Welcoming Walls. Jd, who is affiliated with Richmond's Grid Magazine, and his good friend Dj Williford interviewed Mickael Broth, the man behind the mural project.
Broth is a Richmond-based artist who founded the mural project and aims to bolster pride among residents, invite newcomers to experience the city, and keep money within the community by working with a majority of Richmond-based artists. Welcoming Walls serve to invite and attract newcomers. The walls will create a visual identity for Richmond and help promote the city's reputation of creativity.
