• Art is Hot This Summer

    Hopewell Rocks continues to attract devotees to paint rocks, find rocks, move rocks, and then share the adventure on the facebook page.  This hide and seek social game is providing lots of entertainment during the dog days of summer.

    At Third Thursday’s Open Air Marketplace sponsored by Trapezium Brewing, the Lamb Art Institute is attracting crowds to their free art activities and art survey. 
    The Appomattox River Trail (ART) is working on a Riverwalk and they are presenting to audiences throughout the region to share the new brand and wayfinding system.

    This weekend we will “Paint Out Pollution” which is a project to increase awareness of stormwater pollution by painting art on storm drains throughout the region.  This project continues an effort that began under the direction of Diane Cook who works for the City of Hopewell in the office of Stormwater Management.  Very soon we will have many more beautiful reminders to prevent litter from entering the storm drains that lead to the river and ultimately to the Chesapeake Bay.
