En Plein Air Day at Libby Hill Park

09/09/2011 6:39 AM by

The Historic Richmond Foundation is calling passionate amateurs, seasoned artists, children, friends and visitors to enjoy a day in the park at Libby Hill Park making art on Saturday, September 10 from 10AM-6PM.

In 1733, as he stood on what is now Libby Hill Terrace, William Byrd, II was struck by the resemblance of the bend in the river to that of the river in Richmond-on-Thames, England. Byrd named his new city Richmond. We hope to preserve the view which has remained virtually unchanged for over 275 years, through the artists’ creative vision.

Come see and paint THE VIEW overlooking the James River where Richmond got its name. Calling passionate amateurs, seasoned artists, children, friends and visitors to enjoy a day in the park making art. Sponsored by the Historic Richmond Foundation.

The address is 2801 E. Franklin St., Richmond. We have reserved the park from 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. and will have plenty of bottled water, snacks and lemonade for participants and visitors.

What fun to gather, paint together, see other artist’s work, picnic and enjoy the view that named Richmond!
