First Fridays East 

Friday, April 2.

With the galleries and local businesses of First Fridays Art Walk providing a successful reason to visit downtown, the idea that the monthly event would seek to expand its breadth hardly comes as a surprise. With the prospect of warmer weather providing some possible incentive, Richmond's popular arts and cultural program hopes locals will venture a little farther down Broad between Sixth and Ninth streets for the newly conceived First Fridays East. With the second of three scheduled dates falling on April 2, this experimental annexation is set to include facilities such as the Library of Virginia, St. Paul's Episcopal Church (featuring “Simple Gifts,” an exhibit of photography by Bruce Yoder, above), the University of Richmond Downtown and Richmond CenterStage as they play host to a selection of art exhibitions and music performances from 5-8 p.m.  For a list of the evening's showcases, visit
