Freedom Constellations is a one of kind interactive public art project that imagines a world where all youth have what they need to thrive and stay free. Seen from miles away, the project includes 160 ft tall portraits of Richmond youth leaders on the sides of City Hall (the largest interactive installation on a municipal building in the country) that become animated as viewers hold their phones up to their portraits. Combining art and technology, the project represents a new monument that asks young people to illustrate a road map toward freedom for us all. Join us this fall for FREE interactive tours and experiences.

What does the program include? This field experience provides three immersive stations in which visitors will experience one of a kind reality animation that was co-designed by Richmond youth. In addition, visitors will engage with historic artifacts at John Marshall House and travel to the top of City Hall observation deck with a Valentine guide. Join Performing Statistics educators and explore the city’s ever changing landscape while imagining a better future for Richmond.
