The Wheel of Kindness and April 2013 Atlas Exhibition.
A team of teens from ART 180 set out during October's First Friday Art Walk to interview the public about the presence of young people at the monthly event.
ART 180's summer 2011 public art project, What Do You Stand For?, is captured in-action on PBS's Virginia Currents. This show aired in October 2011, right after the portraits were unveiled at First Fridays. This is an intimate, behind-the-scenes video of the rising-sixth graders painting their portraits, and you can hear first-hand their thoughts and aspirations that went into making these works of art.
Diverse students from George Wythe and Huguenot high schools in Richmond, VA were brought together by ART 180 to participate in an intercultural mural project. After looking for several months for a place to paint their mural, the students were offered a space on Hull St. and Cowardin Ave. to create one of the biggest murals Richmond has ever seen.
This documentary was made as part of an ART 180 video production class conducted during spring 2011. The concept, filming and interviews were all planned by the students. Due to time restraints, the editing and music were done by the program leaders Jen Lawhorne and Eryn Ross.
