As the General Registrar for Richmond, I am excited to announce our first-ever I Voted Sticker contest, exclusively open to students enrolled in the highly-renowned arts program at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCUarts). This decision stems from a deep recognition of the unparalleled talent fostered within VCUarts and the significant role it plays in shaping the cultural landscape of our city and beyond.

VCUarts stands as a beacon of excellence in visual arts and design education, boasting a distinguished reputation both nationally and internationally. With nearly 2,800 undergraduates and over 160 graduate students annually, it serves as a vibrant hub of creativity and innovation. The program's ethos of hands-on learning and experimentation empowers students to explore their artistic visions while pushing the boundaries of traditional art forms. By leveraging its position within a major urban public research university, VCUarts provides students with unique opportunities to integrate their artistic practices with broader intellectual inquiry and social engagement.

By hosting our I Voted Sticker contest exclusively for VCUarts students, we are not only showcasing the exceptional talent cultivated within the program but also highlighting the importance of arts education in our community. This initiative not only celebrates the creativity and skill of our local artists but also underscores the integral role of the arts in civic engagement and cultural expression.

Moreover, by engaging with VCUarts students, we are tapping into a pool of emerging talent that represents the future of the arts landscape in Richmond and beyond. By providing a platform for these students to showcase their work, we are fostering a sense of pride and recognition within the VCUarts community while also promoting the vibrant cultural identity of our city.

In conclusion, utilizing the I Voted Sticker contest as a means to promote the talent of VCUarts students is not only a testament to the excellence of the program, but also a reflection of our commitment to supporting and celebrating the arts in Richmond. I am confident that this collaboration will yield inspiring and impactful results, further solidifying Richmond's reputation as a hub of artistic innovation and creativity.

Keith Balmer – General Registrar
