About the Project

Rumors of War: Kehinde Wiley’s 27-foot tall sculpture was permanently installed at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA), at its entrance on historic Arthur Ashe Boulevard in Richmond, VA. The sculpture is made of patinated bronze, and along with the stone pedestal, weighs 30 tons. Dunbar provided foundational support for the pedestal and sculpture design.
