When Style Weekly started publishing in 1982, who knew that someday a tennis great would join the Confederates on Monument, that thousands would swarm downtown each month to gawk at art, that a local karaoke champ would become a household name. Look back with us at 25 years of turning points in Richmond arts.
Style Weekly's mission is to provide smart, witty and tenacious coverage of Richmond. Our editorial team strives to reveal Richmond's true identity through unflinching journalism, incisive writing, thoughtful criticism, arresting photography and sophisticated presentation.
We make sense of the news; pursue those in power; explore the city's arts and culture; open windows on provocative ideas; and help readers know Richmond through its people. We give readers the information to make intelligent decisions.
