Richmond, VA, March 24, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Art on Wheels, a Richmond nonprofit that brings comprehensive art programming to local communities with limited access to the arts, is launching its biggest community art project ever. In conjunction with Studio Two Three and benefiting LINC (the Legal Information Network for Cancer), Art on Wheels create a monumental 1,000-foot collograph print (and setting a Guinness Book world record in the process) that honors people in Richmond who have been affected by cancer. It will be like Richmond’s own AIDS Quilt. The project launches in March with a press conference demonstrating the process and raising awareness for the project, which will culminate in a day-long community festival in Scott’s Addition where the massive art project will actually be created.

When: Thursday, March 24, 10:30 a.m. to 12 noon
