RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) - A sleepy and slightly angry panda bear on West Cary Street.

A vampire cringing in the light on Madison Street just off Broad downtown.

A slightly clad young woman sitting in strawberries above the 7-Eleven at Main and Harrison and a bewitching tiger woman casting magic down on Main Street.

All this and more coming to life as 12 internationally known muralists from around the world converge on Richmond to paint to the town red and many other colors for the second annual Richmond Mural Project.

Last year, we saw 23 new murals added to the cityscape. This year, it looks like there will be 20 more.

There will be a party and reception to celebrate the project and the artists Saturday starting at noon at 2416 W. Cray Street.
