#jeffersonhotel #rva #richmondva (at Jefferson Hotel Richmond)

Interior shot of the Jefferson Hotel here in Richmond. The Jefferson is an absolutely amazing place to visit - the architecture is stunning! There were also live alligators in the lobby pool until the 1950’s. The Jefferson is also very close to Hollywood Cemetery, which is one of our largest and most historic cemeteries in RVA. The cemetery overlooks the James and has absolutely gorgeous statues and grave markers. Check them both out when coming to Richmond!

Wurlitzer before the show #byrdtheater #rva (at The Byrd Theatre & Foundation)

This is a picture of the Mighty Wurlitzer playing before a movie screening at our Byrd Theatre! Really makes going to the Byrd exciting and a must see for anyone going to the Byrd. :) Remember the Byrd also has $2 admission so there really is no reason not to go visit it, even just once.-Jordan W.Super Senior in Art Education and Craft/Material StudiesLead Tour Guide

VCU’s Comic Arts Collection, which boasts more than 43,000 comic books and more than 150,000 items overall, provides researchers with a wealth of scholarly material and primary resources for the study of culture, history, art, language, politics, business and science through the lens of comic arts. Read more here.

Our library is currently going under an intense rebuilding at the moment, but it hosts an insane comic book collection! We have one of the largest collections in the US and as an art student here, popping in even just to flip through some is a very nice opportunity. Check it out!

Here’s a video of Matt Lively’s AFO Surface class painting murals in the stairwells at Johnson Hall last April! 

Johnson Hall is the dorm that the artist colony is and where most art students live. It’s an older building filled with so much character; every room is a different shape!

Hey guys!!!! So if you’re coming in next fall you might see these magazines all over campus. The journal is called Poictesme and it is completely student run. It includes art, stories, poems, all made by students!! Oh, and the cover art? That’s my work!! 
The VCU Student Media Center publishes many different student run media including magazines, newspapers, journals. It also helps with student blogs like The Horn RVA, which is all about the Richmond music scene or Shafer Bird  which is all about the Richmond food scene. Becoming involved in their publication is a great way to get experience with publishing and getting your work out there! 
Here’s more info about Poictesme and if you wanna see more of the series that made the cover just click here for my website!!
