The unveiling took place behind the Food Lion near Sal’s by Victor. Mayor Douglas G. Pons and other city officials were on hand. Attendees were offered hot cider provided by Earth Fare, as well as cookies from Insomnia Cookies.
“We just want to say thank you to the City of Williamsburg and all the members of the Public Art Council and Joanna and Silas who was unable to make it to the unveiling,” Hannah Warner, Midtown Row’s Marketing and Events Coordinator, said. “We look forward to many more murals in the area.”
The newly installed Eastern Tiger Swallowtail butterfly mural was completed by artist Silas Baker in October.
In August, the City of Williamsburg celebrated the completion of the first public mural approved by the Williamsburg Public Art Council on the wall alongside Silver Hand Meadery. More mural projects are anticipated in the Midtown Row area.
