The first piece of the The Light of Human Kindness project is finishing up this morning and will almost immediately be painted over.
The hand-painting of the collected stories onto the kindness wall at the old GRTC Depot started Saturday and has continued all weekend. Sometime this morning, Richmond artist Hamilton Glass will paint a mural over the stories of shared humanity and goodness.
The 1,000 (LED light bulbs) installed directly on an 80-foot wall in Cary Street will then light up one-by-one in real time as people from Richmond and around the world complete acts of kindness inspired by the mural art or their own experience of needing light during a dark time.
The mural will be part of the RVA Street Art Festival starting September 11-15th.
