RVA Street Art: Richmond Mural Project 2014

In 2014, the fervor for street art seems to have cooled a little.  There was no RVA Street Art Festival, the Richmond Mural project produced fewer pieces than it had in the previous years, and online coverage was slack.  Art Whino didn't even bother to record their own 2014 murals as they had for 2012 and 2013. I'm not sure what caused the decreased enthusiasm, as it seems to be back this year.  Announcements have already been made concerning the plans for both the Richmond Mural Project and RVA Street Art Festival for this year.

 David Flores came to Richmond with a pretty specific vision.  He created 10 different "Wouldstalks" in various locations around the city.  Unfortunately, I only found the following four, but maybe I'll look for the rest on my next trip.
