Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, our community is finding unique ways to come together while apart, connecting through the arts and expressing their support for front line workers. Everywhere residents go they will find artful hearts and rainbows in the windows of Richmond homes and businesses. The Cycling Art Tour has been created for residents of all ages to get outdoors and celebrate community art and Richmond Public Art in a safe way. The artworks comprising the tour underscore the power and resilience of community, connection, togetherness, home and place. All the artworks are accessible to the public regardless of facility closure status. Take the tour alone or together with your household or small pod. Art Tour Challenge: How many hearts can you find in the windows of homes and businesses created to show support for front line workers? Share your favourites online and tag #RichmondHasHeart. Tour begins at City Centre Community Centre.

This event runs the duration of Culture Days.
