We host a number of art openings, readings, signings, and special events year-round. We love being a home for creators and fans to connect, and have hosted events with a variety of artists both local and international, from the notorious Michael DeForge/Patrick Kyle/Simon Hanselmann WILD BOYZ TOUR to a signing with CeCe Bell (El Deafo), Brooke Allen (Lumberjanes), and Coleman Engle (Steven Universe) for the Virginia Festival of the Book.
