    Everyone is invited to celebrate design

VCU arts is the nations #1 ranked public art school. VCU design runs an innovative, community engaged studio, Middle of Broad (MoB) with community partner, the Storefront for Community Design.

MoB+Storefront operates on the belief that good design makes a healthier city where citizens participate more fully in their environment, their government and their culture.

The Storefront for Community Design is Richmond’s non-profit design assistance center, improving the quality of design in the city by facilitating access to design and planning resources.

MoB is a partnership of three design departments of VCUarts, Graphic Design, Fashion Design and Interior Design. These departments operate an innovative design lab that realizes the potential of design to shape the City.

MoB+Storefront is a collaboration of MoB and Storefront that combines the energy, enthusiasm and expertise of VCU students, fellows and faculty with Storefront’s community involvement. Together they design the city from the bike rack to the bungalow to the corner store, from neighborhoods to the River.
