  • September 23, 2017 | 10:00 am

Dogs are invited to join their owners for this walking tour of the Murals of Jackson Ward, presented in partnership with the Richmond SPCA. Dogs must have current shots, mix well with others and remain leashed. Owners are responsible for water and cleaning up after their dogs. Reservations required.

Explore the diversity of one of Richmond’s most vibrant neighborhoods. During our walk we’ll visit murals, buildings renovated and revitalized, and historic homes to learn more about a neighborhood that has had numerous incarnations. From immigrant working class neighborhood to the Harlem of the South, see how art is shaping the face of Jackson Ward today. Meet at the corner of 2nd and East Marshall Streets, in front of the mural.
