This Wednesday, Preservation Virginia is bringing together lawmakers, preservationists, civic leaders, architects and developers to discuss historic preservation and how it benefits local communities. Register here.
There’s a fresh mural, finished just last October, on the north wall in Virginia Humanities’ new Dairy Market headquarters. The color palette features warm earth tones–browns, oranges, reds–an almost perfect contrast to the cool blues and creams in the surrounding decor. But for the subgroup of Virginia Humanities staff and board members that made up our Community Engagement Committee, the most important aspect of the mural wasn’t how it would make the space look, but how it would make the space feel.
