Between the abundant tattoo shops and increasing number of murals, RVA is a city that has embraced its pulsating art scene. This is further echoed in the recent ground breaking of VCU’s Institute for Contemporary Art (ICA). This 35 million dollar project located at the intersection of Belvidere and Broad, promises to be innovative, ever-changing and always challenging. The Director of the ICA, Dr. Lisa Freiman will share her leadership vision for the project as well as give attendees a first look at how the ICA will become a catalyst for new experiences that will enrich the lives of Richmonders, students and tourists alike. Check out the progress already happening on the site’s webcam!

HYPE Women No. 5

Marvin Lang Building
1623 W. Broad Street
For the past year, the HYPE Women series has been dedicated to offering programming specific to the career needs of millennial women as well as introducing attendees to women in the RVA community who are leaning whichever way they want. The final event will introduce Amy George, a triple threat leader in the RVA community. Her 9-5 is working for the City of Richmond as a Sustainability Management Analyst followed by a volunteer management role in the local non-profit, Ride Richmond which is dedicated to promoting a bike friendly community through education, programming and events. Recently, Amy just successfully hosted the first Women’s Cycling Summit which aimed to encourage and empower more women cyclists in the Richmond area. Furthermore, and what will be the main focus of this HYPE Women event, is Amy’s side hustle: her hand crafted fragrances inspired by the scents and sights of Richmond. Amy will unlock the mysteries of fragrance with a discussion about how scent affects us, how scents are composed and how fragrance design intersects with the other senses. Afterwards, each attendee will have a chance to create a custom perfume of their choosing. Check out Modern Atelier to view some of Amy’s signature fragrances.
