Writing About Richmond’s Cultural Gems

Carrie Culpepper

Now that I’ve been back in Richmond, Virginia for a year, I’m reacquainted with this city of rich contrasts. It’s full of tradition and classic American architecture mixed with a thriving grassroots arts scene and the #1 public art school in the country.  It’s a pretty cool place, really. (Here I am in Church Hill’s Libbie Hill Park overlooking the downtown warehouse district.) And just last night, Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln,” which was mostly shot here this summer, premiered two blocks from my house at the awesome, historic Byrd Theater.

Coincidentally, I have a flurry of stories on Richmond, Va. coming out. First up: I wrote THREE stories for a special section on Richmond in the November issue of U.S. Airways Magazine – on the Richmond Ballet, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, and Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts. Here’s the entire, 40-page Richmond section. Next, I’ve got a travel story on Richmond coming out in The New York Times any Sunday now... Stay tuned.
