Re: “InLight Richmond Looks to a Famous Carnival More Than a Century Ago

I've been to the InLight exhibition down by the Canl Walk and at Monroe Park. This year's InLight was extremely disappointing. It was difficult to gain access to the installations due to the First Friday's event crowds. Most of the exhibits this year were digital projections - nothing was note worthy. Fortunately the weather was great and the stores on Broad Street made money, but the Artists and spectators were short changed this year.

Re: “Counting the Votes

The Shockoe Ball Stadium is a proposal. Until large retailers like Walmart, Target, Kohls & Home Depot agree to build where the Diamond is then a stadium in The Bottom is only a nice idea. The sales tax revenues from those stores will surpass any revenue from a ball park. Additional jobs in the city too. So say goodbye to The Diamond, Ashe Center and the ABC warehouse.

Re: “Violent Attack Closes Street Art Festival

We already front GRTC's costs in the forms of taxes and fees. It was a nice partnership between local artists and GRTC, and I am thankful. Of course I'm angry at the criminals that infect Richmond.

Re: “Violent Attack Closes Street Art Festival

Yes it's all about the money - art - beauty - why care?
My checkbook finances a city that seems to be for sale to developers
Art is nice as long as it doesn't get in the way. Instead of increasing
the protection of this new and exciting project it is shut down - Stupid

Waiting for this property to be sold to a development corporation and turned into a gated condo community with armed guards. Belle Isle shutdown is next.
