Change for a Ten Logo

To celebrate our 10th anniversary, we didn’t just ask people to make a $10 donation.

We asked them to make a statement. To submit their artistic vision for community change along with their actual $10 bill. What we got were thousands of entries from all over Richmond (and beyond). From students to seniors. From painters to politicians. And everyone in between.

Many of you joined us for the exhibition where we displayed nearly 2,700 art dollars together at our 10th anniversary celebration on
10-10-2008. Check out our blog to see more of the "dollars" we received!

And now we will continue to amplify these voices as we look for new ways to showcase the art dollars and the concerns they represent—about the environment, transportation, education, healthcare, and more—to resume conversations already begun and spark new ones, bridging gaps, building community, and effecting change.
