CALLING ALL ARTISTS - Culpeper Downtown Walls Mural Program 2017
Culpeper Renaissance Inc. (CRI) and The Arts A'loft a non-profit wing of The Loft is excited to announce the Culpeper Downtown Walls Mural Program!
The placement of wall murals will enhance the physical appearance and strengthen the sense of place in downtown Culpeper, while capitalizing on some of our assets: history, architecture, countryside and the growth of an arts culture in our community. Murals have become a unique and appealing way of increasing tourism and improving commerce. This project will enhance downtowns inviting atmosphere for new and existing businesses while enticing locals and visitors to make downtown a destination point. The Arts culture is growing in Culpeper and CRI is excited to utilize this growth and establish professional relationships with talented local artists to enhance the beauty of Historic Downtown Culpeper through building wall murals.
The goal for this project is to pictorially preserve and celebrate the art, history and culture of Culpeper while increasing the charm and character of our town for residents and visitors alike. We will take pride in:
Promoting economic development by increasing tourism, business and tax revenues, and property values
Inspiring and energizing our town and uniting our community, organized groups, and businesses by encouraging participation from all ages and walks of life
Beautifying our streets
Create a greater appreciation of the visual arts and our historical roots while establishingthe face and identity of Culpeper
