RICHMOND, Va. -- The Virginia Museum of History & Culture is bringing the community together through a mural project that encourages participants to unite through art.

“All in Together” is a collaboration with local artists Hamilton Glass and Matt Lively, and features multiple murals already around the Richmond area. Visitors can find coloring sheets online and submit them to be assembled by the artists to form a larger mural.

The deadline to submit and be considered a part of an outdoor exhibition is May 22.

The VMHC will display several of the murals as a special outdoor exhibition starting in mid-June.

“We are so proud to be teaming up with Hamilton Glass again for this very special project," MHC President and CEO Jamie Bosket said. “The goal of reaching out to the greater Richmond community to unite people of all walks of life during such trying times of social distancing is so very important. We plan to display a number of these murals as banners on the front of the museum as a special outdoor exhibition and will document the project for future generations to show how everyone came together during this pandemic.”
