Richmond Main Street Initiative - Downtown Arts

Art In Windows brings together artists, merchants, property owners, residents, and organizations from the local community to transform vacant storefronts into living, breathing art spaces that celebrate the rich legacy and history of Downtown Richmond, and to explore the relationship between art and community development. Receptions for Art In Windows exhibitions invite residents from all over the Bay area to visit Downtown Richmond and discover its rich arts heritage, which continues into the present. In addition to bringing people together to enjoy the Art In Windows displays, all receptions also feature a Downtown art walk that highlights the many pieces of public art on view throughout the district and to demonstrate the positive changes occurring in the neighborhood.



Downtown Richmond is home to a rich heritage and an abundance of public artworks. Richmond Main Street partners with local artists, the City of Richmond Arts and Culture Commission, and others to promote the arts in Downtown through our Art In Windows program and special events.

Art In Windows


Downtown Richmond is bursting with great public art displays. We've put together a virtual art walk slideshow and a self-guided art walk map so residents and visitors alike can explore Downtown and discover all the great art in the district.
