NBC 29: The Bridge Progressive Arts Initiative Creates Interactive Map of City Murals
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) – More than a dozen creative murals grace the walls of schools and businesses in Charlottesville and Albemarle County.
Thanks to a new interactive mural map, you can easily pinpoint a mural’s exact location and learn more about the artwork itself.
“Every mural kind of has a different story and a different kind of origin story behind, sometimes we find the wall first, sometimes we find the funding first, sometimes we find the artist first and then try to scramble to make all the other things happen, there’s really a lot of flexibility that’s required for running the Charlottesville mural project,” said Alan Goffinski, with The Bridge Progressive Arts Initiative.
The Charlottesville Mural Project is led by The Bridge Progressive Arts Initiative. That group said it is working on several new projects that will be unveiled throughout the summer.
