Experience the World

Hear from Sally

Welcome! Lucky YOU! You’ve stumbled upon an artistic treasure hunt. Local artists have interpreted one another’s art in the vein of a game of ‘Telephone.’  Follow the stops on the map. Let local artists guide you through their town. Taste music! Smell poetry! Come on a sensory journey with CONSENSES WALKS. It’s FREE. Give yourself the gift of your own creativity on this short adventure today.

Take a walk around Stanardsville, Virginia, and experience art from five local artists.
A mural, a song, an ice cream cone, followed by a poem, a photograph, and a sculpture. Enjoy this walk around Richmond, VA.
Start with a sculpture and end with an ice cream cone, listening to music and viewing inspiring art.

Consenses Walks takes the art out of the museum and turns every neighborhood into a gallery. 

A musician interprets an established local mural, extracts its essence and expresses their understanding of it as a song, a local cafe interprets their song and creates a signature coffee drink, a poet interprets the beverage, a local sculptor interprets the poem, a perfumer interprets the sculpture and so on until all five senses are represented.  

The final work is available to be viewed for the public, throughout a neighborhood and through the use of our map takes the form of a walk.  In this way neighborhoods celebrate their artists, artists connect and share with their audiences and visitors grow an appreciation for the root-like connections created by the artists who make a neighborhood vibrant.
