Save the Date for the 22nd Annual CPRV Front Porch Art Walk

Colonial Place–Riverview’s 2023 Front Porch Art Walk is like no other in Hampton Roads. In its 22nd year, Colonial Place & Riverview resident artists will showcase original works of art and creativity on their front porches throughout the day’s walking tour. The Front Porch Art Walk has grown and changed from its inception in 1998 when artist and CPRV resident Sheila Robinson conceived the idea to highlight and support local fine artists. 


Asphalt Art Comes to Colonial Place

During our February Civic League meeting, Colonial Place resident, Melissa Seek presented her idea of adding asphalt art to Colonial Place and Riverview. The Civic League voted in favor of pursuing this project!
