ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) — A new mural at the Barracks Road exit of the 250 Bypass has been completed.

The mural stretches for more than 100 feet around a large concrete wall. It depicts a variety of people, as well as familiar scenes like the University of Virginia Rotunda and the Blue Ridge Mountains.

The artist, Chicho Lorenzo, said he hopes people will see themselves in the mural.

The county is hosting an event with Lorenzo on Dec. 11 at 7 p.m. at Jack Jouett Middle School to allow people to meet the muralist.
