Mending Walls is a public art project in Richmond, Va, the goal of which is to promote healing by having artists from different backgrounds tell their stories through their murals. The project was conceived by Richmond muralist Hamilton Glass. The name comes from a Robert Frost poem about two farmers who come together to mend a fence.
Beyond the Mending Walls project, Richmond is a city of murals with more than 150 adorning its public spaces.
I am big fan of murals and street art in general, but find the murals particularly fascinating when they tell the stories of a place and its people. It looks like Richmond has a lot of interesting and thought-provoking murals.

Agree with Donna. I especially like the mural of the bicyclists’ shadows.
