A statue inspired by the J.E.B. Stuart Confederate Monument is coming to VMFA soon. The museum announced today that they will install the large-scale sculpture cast in bronze of a black person astride a horse in front of the museum -- just four blocks from Monument Avenue.
The statue called Rumors of War is artist Kehinde Wiley’s first public art work. VMFA says Wiley got the idea for the sculpture during his visit to Richmond for an exhibition in 2016.
