Brief Description

The International Association of Fire Fighters Local Chapter 68 seeks to commission an artist to create a mural to bring attention to the Norfolk headquarters located at 5691 E. Virginia Beach Blvd. The building sits at the busy off-ramp and is visible from the Military Highway overpass. The final artwork should have a fire fighter theme that represents the organization and includes gender and racial diversity as well as the dual duties of firefighting and emergency medical services. The mural should show a unique perspective that is different from the traditional firefighter themes often represented.
