Mural Tour
July 2017


About the Tour

My name is Emily Herr, and I’m a full-time, self-employed muralist based in Richmond, VA. I work out of a step van that I’ve converted into a one-of-a-kind Mobile Mural Studio. This July, I’m going to embark with my friend and assistant Sarah Apple in this rolling studio on an epic one-month Girls!Girls!Girls!-themed mural painting tour up the east coast, from Virginia to Vermont.

The spark for this trip is my awe of the Women’s March and my frustration with poor representation of women in media, combined with a love of adventure and travel. Our goal is to create a public mural series that visually celebrates women as complex human beings, in contrast to the ubiquitous public imagery that flattens us into simple objects.
