Art on Wheels: Veteran's Impact Project

The Veteran’s Impact Project is a large scale, public monument created by veterans through performance art at the Dominion Riverrock Festival.

The monument is a collaborative effort of Art on Wheels, and sculptor James Robertson. Registered participants will operate a Roman siege device called a Ballista, to hurl assorted objects symbolic of military service into large clay panels. The resulting 3’x15’ relief sculpture honors military service through the creation of a truly unique commemorative monument, and will be permanently installed for public display.

The Veteran’s Impact Project challenges conventional approaches to public art by involving the honorees in every aspect of creating a monument to their service. Unlike most military service monuments, The Veteran’s Impact Project celebrates service members who came home, and gives them a platform to communicate to a broader audience about their experiences.

ABOUT DOMINION RIVERROCK

Dominion Riverrock, organized by Venture Richmond and the Sports Backers, is the nation's premier outdoor lifestyle festival, bringing athletes, spectators, musicians, and even dogs to Brown’s Island for a three-day festival against the backdrop of downtown Richmond’s urban riverfront. The festival features a variety of outdoor sports including trail running, kayaking, biking, bouldering, slacklining, stand up paddleboarding, and dog jumping. The event was designed to promote Richmond’s unique riverfront, downtown trails and whitewater rapids to outdoor enthusiasts. As a result of the creation of Dominion Riverrock, there is a stronger appreciation for the value of outdoor recreation throughout the entire Richmond region.
