More details (from a press release/email):

Sheltering Arms is honoring two of its biggest supporters and two of Richmond's biggest art icons tomorrow. Robert Watkins and deVeaux Riddick have been involved with Sheltering Arms' annual Bal du Bois fundraiser from its start in 1957. Every year they create the fantastic sets that make the event so unique among Richmond social events and fundraisers. Renderings of each of the sets they've created will be going on permanent display at the Sheltering Arms Hospital at Memorial Regional Medical Center in Mechanicsville. A dedication of the artwork will be held tomorrow, October 14, at noon, at MRMC.
