Arts Preview: Richmond's arts and culture scene continues to grow

From the Richmond Times Dispatch, August 2016:

Season brings array of dance, theater, gallery, music events plus new art house cinema

"The word’s out on Richmond’s ever-growing local arts and culture scene, and everything from a new art house cinema downtown to a massive monthlong arts blitz is on the way.

The area’s biggest arts and culture support group, CultureWorks, has designated October as “artoberVA” and is promoting, sponsoring and otherwise ramping up enthusiasm for events all month long in a wide range of fields and venues and geared to a diverse array of tastes.

The calendar includes 56 different things in the first week alone, and that’s before the Richmond Folk Festival even begins."
