In a project jointly sponsored by City of Richmond Parks and Recreation, VCU Painting and Printmaking Department, Friends of the James River Park, and James River Hikers, students from the VCU Painting and Printmaking Department painted the walls of the North Bank Park stair tower. The 30 colorful murals depict turtles, herons, raccoons, bats, owls and ladybugs, as well as other creatures that dwell in and around the James River.
