Jenni Kirby wasn’t always immersed in the arts but decided to expand her horizons by opening Crossroads Art Center with a friend in 2002. Kirby became the sole owner in 2012. Today, Crossroads Art Center has significantly increased in size and popularity and is now the home to over 225 different local artists. As her appreciation deepened, she started her second art endeavor, BuyRVAart, which she co-owns.
Her passion for connecting the community with the arts is almost unrivaled. Anyone who knows Jenni knows that she is always up for making connections, helping to promote her neighbors, and finding new, creative ways to be loyal to local.

With a single bus, they were able to help bridge gaps in the community by providing transit for commuters from rural Virginia into downtown Richmond. This opened up new opportunities for employment and connected shoppers with the bustling city shops.
