The Charlottesville Mural Project (a program of The Bridge Progressive Arts Initiative) is seeking submissions from regional muralists in the design and creation of a mural in the heart of Charlottesville. The mural will be located along Barracks Road near the 250 Bypass. This project is a partnership between The Charlottesville Mural Project, The Bridge Progressive Arts Initiative, The County of Albemarle, the Virginia Department of Transportation, and local residents.
About the Location: Barracks Road is an urban collector and a designated Albemarle County entrance corridor utilized by local residents and tourists. In addition, Barracks Road connects one of the City’s busiest shopping centers with the rolling hills of rural Albemarle County. There are neighborhoods and homes along this section of Barracks Road. Going west Barracks Road quickly becomes Garth Road, designated a Virginia Byway by the Commonwealth of Virginia. As a scenic road, Barracks/Garth Road is advertised to tourists as an alternate destination, leading to vineyards, the Artisan Trail, Foxfield Races and other attractions.
