12th Tiny Painting for RVA

Today's painting was left outside Tricycle Garden's Office, in appreciation for all the wonderful things they do for our community. From their website:

Three architects founded Tricycle Gardens (501(c)3) in 2002 while living in Church Hill–a neighborhood in Richmond, Virginia that juxtaposes meticulously renovated historic homes with high-density public housing; stunning vistas of the James River with abandoned, overgrown lots. The founders believed community gardens and the simple act of growing food were the fastest ways to improve the health of their community–both for the residents and the environment. What started with the city’s first community garden on a vacant lot owned by The Better Housing Coalition, has grown into four Community Gardens, three Learning Gardens, a green house, and now an urban farm.

The Real Small Art League is giving away 30 works of art in 30 days to Richmond, Virginia. You can find small paintings, creative works and wearable art in plain sight ~ usually adjacent to our favorite spots in our community. Questions? Email realsmallart@gmail.com
