In a team-building event at the 2018 Schnabel University Technical Workshop. eight teams discovered their inner artist and turned out brightly-colored paintings of superheroes. The 24″ x 36″ canvases were donated to our friends at Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU, where some would be displayed and others would be given to children to take home.
Thanks to all who participated and especially to Children’s Hospital, a positive force in the community and in the lives of the real superheroes: the children and families it serves. The art was delivered by Heather Baskin at right and Victoria Landrum (and Wonder Woman) next to her.
