On February 14th, Richmond’s Gallery5 will be hosting a Validation Day Parade, organized by All the Saints Theater Company, Milk River Arts and Gallery5. This performance, which is free and open to the public, is designed to challenge and rethink how we celebrate love. It will feature banners, posters and prints made by Milk River Arts, music by members of Richmond’s, No BS Brass, a printmaking performance project by artist Barry O’Keefe, and costumes and massive puppets by All the Saints Theater Company.
Come behold as we adorn a giant river goddess with a garland of loving messages. Join our efforts to reclaim Valentine’s Day from the forces of consumerism and toxic love mythologies!
