WHY I LOVE RVA TODAY: #UNTOLDRVA WINS FEAST RVA

Cold Sundays in January are normally reserved for the NFL Playoffs but this year was an exception because I had to get off my couch, hold off on the chicken wings, and get myself over to the latest installment of Feast RVA at Black Iris.

Feast RVA was brought to Richmond by Johnny Hugel and Josh Epperson in 2011. It’s truly a community gathering that funds brilliant ideas over a delicious meal. On January 19th, NFL Championship Sunday, I joined the Feast RVA community to hear three amazing proposals for community action. The meal was provided by Lunch and Supper and the music by a great trio Gracious Ghost.

Maat Free’s presentation for #untoldrva won the evening’s prize, a undisclosed amount of cash, voted on by those in the room. According to the Feast RVA website #untoldrva:Clean, creative typography + design to inspire up to 50,000 GRTC mass transit riders every month by dropping knowledge on interior bus ads so that everyday people can have a deeper connectedness to the fascinating hidden history of RVA.” Be on the look out for the work of #untoldrva in the days ahead.
