RVA Street Art: The GRTC Bus Depot (Part I)

RVA Street Art: The GRTC Bus Depot | Yeti Crafts

I saw the bus depot in all of its street art splendor last year when I moved back from Kentucky and discovered that an artistic renaissance was happening in my home town.  The site had already been locked up for a little over eight months at that point and I was bummed about missing out on the opportunity to go inside.  I took two different trips downtown and walked all the way around the property, taking photos through the chain link fence, gazing longingly inside, and sighing dramatically.
