Bay Area Mural Fest comes to Richmond this week

on October 5, 2017

This week, an eclectic group of muralists are converging Richmond to paint 11 new murals, part of the second annual Bay Area Mural Festival.

And this Sunday, the Richmond Art Center will celebrate the completion of these artworks with an event featuring music, kids’ activities such as live painting, and even a bike tour of the new murals.

All of this is supported by nonprofits, including the California Arts Council and Los Probes Artistas, a collective of muralist brought together by the La Peña Cultural Center. According to the BAMF website, the murals will have social justice themes to draw “attention to issues of environmental degradation, pollution and climate change.”

This event is free to the public, performance and activities will run from 1-6 p.m. Click here for more information about BAMF and photos of what muralists have created so far.
