The Visual Arts Center of Richmond presents an exhibition of work by Lukaza Branfman-Verissimo, Valeska Populoh, Lil Lamberta and All the Saints Theater Company in the True F. Luck Gallery. 

Community Build showcases three multi-disciplinary artists who use puppetry, performance, and procession as means to create collective and personal moments of celebration, resistance, and reflection. Rooted in storytelling and activism, these artists explore our interdependence through community builds, call and response, and direct action to find ways that we can be in better relationship with each other and the planet. Using handmade puppets, banners and performance, this exhibition examines the powerful role objects and shared stories play in movements for social change and community care.

This exhibition will feature related performances and hands-on community builds culminating at  the All The Saints annual parade at the close of the exhibition on October 31, 2022.
