Community Meeting on Mural Project at Rt. 250 & Barracks Rd.

County Wide
Board Room (COB Room 241)
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Over the past several months, the Bridge Progressive Arts Initiative, the Charlottesville Mural Project, Elizabeth Breeden, VDOT, County staff, and Diantha McKeel have been collaborating in an effort to identify a solution to transform the large concrete wall of the Rt. 250 exit ramp to Barracks Road into a more permanent mural. We are pleased to report having received support from the University of Virginia, VDOT, as well as private citizens and are now prepared to put out a call to artists for design submissions.

To that end, area neighbors and stakeholders are cordially invited to a community meeting on July 31, 2017 from 7:00 - 8:30 PM at the County Office Building, 401 McIntire Road, Room 241. Participants will review the progress to-date and provide input on potential themes for the wall. The feedback received at this meeting will be used to inform a call to artists.

We hope you will join us at this meeting and weigh-in on the effort to address the aesthetic appearance of our neighborhood.
