Local artists still have time to apply for a chance to paint murals

VIRGINIA BEACH — The Virginia Beach Office of Cultural Affairs and the Department of Parks and Recreation have joined forces again for a new mural project, but time to apply is running out — the deadline to apply is Tuesday.

According to a news release from the city, three Virginia Beach Recreation Centers — Great Neck, Bayside, and Princess Anne — are in search of artists to transform their blank entryway walls into works of art that reflect the spirit of each rec center’s community.

Artists may submit for more than one recreation center, but could only be awarded one, as all three murals will be completed simultaneously, according to the news release.

Each recreation center mural consists of two sections measuring approximately 440 square feet. After a shortlist is decided, the community will publicly vote on the final selection of each mural.

More information, as well as the application, are available online.

The murals will be completed by the selected artists during the first two weeks in March 2019.
