Brief Description

The City of Virginia Beach Office of Cultural Affairs is seeking a qualified artist or artist team to provide a site-specific mural for the Rudee Loop North lot wall. The mural’s goal is to transform a drab, utilitarian space into a fun and lively public work of art. This artwork will create a unique sense of place and public art destination that anchors the southern-most point of Atlantic Avenue and connects to the highly trafficked Rudee Inlet, while complementing the City’s existing public art pieces, World Below the Brine on the north end of the lot and Seashore Cathedral at the Rudee Walkway. The site is adjacent to the Rudee Loop area, which has a highly visible pedestrian foot/bike path and serves as a welcoming space for visitors, residents and families. The area is widely used by residents and visitors for activities such as boating, kayaking, fishing, surfing, parasailing and sightseeing.
