A mural by Richmond artist Hamilton Glass is looking for a new home and you can have it for free -- all you have to do is transport it.
From our friends at First Fridays:
"Did you love the RVA Street Art Festival? Still dreaming about murals? Would you like one of your own?
In 2011, HandsOn Greater Richmond and Altria collaborated with Hamilton Glass to produce a mural at the corner of Broad and Brook. Shortly after the mural was completed the building was sold and the new owner did not want the mural displayed on the building. We are currently looking for a home for the mural, to share the piece with the community and reconnect it to its purpose of beautifying the Broad St corridor.

The mural consists of 19 pieces of Marine plywood, and each piece is 8ft tall and 4 ft wide.
Aside from transportation and rehanging, there is NO COST for this mural!"
The Philadelphia-born artist participated in the last two RVA Street Art Festivals. His work has also been seen all over town. At the floodwall, he did the mural of the vintage-era looking woman with the yellow banner over her head. At the bus barn, he did the mural of the young boy getting a tribal tattoo. He signs his work as "Ham?" You can see more of his work here.
First Fridays says they'd like to keep the mural in the Arts District if possible.
