The Iridian Gallery recently debuted a new mural by ally and friend of the gallery Nico Cathcart. Our Sherwood entrance at Diversity has always been our most nondescript and when it came time to commission signage for the gallery and offices, we jumped on the opportunity to expand the project into a beautiful work of art welcoming visitors to our space.
Created in collaboration with Bron Hansboro, of Brookland Park Flowers, the floral arrangement rendered on our wall pulls colors from the Pride flag and evokes the beauty and vibrancy of our community. Bron was commissioned using the first funds from our Diversity Celebrates Grant, dedicated to supporting queer creatives of color in Richmond.
We hope you will visit the mural and our gallery in person soon or catch a glimpse when driving through the city on I-95.
