Paint and Poetry

Congratulations to Charlottesville, Virginia, for completing a third mural in the Paint & Poetry series. The Charlottesville Mural Project is a project of New City Arts. In addition to the Paint & Poetry series, CMP has adorned the walls of many structures throughout the region.

The first mural, at the Starr Hill Brewery in Crozet (about 12 miles west of Charlottesville) combines lyrics from the band Hurray for the Riff Raff with art by Duncan Robertson. More on the Crozet mural here. The second mural, at at Charlottesville High School, combined student art and poetry.

The third, a large mural on the side of The Graduate Hotel, uses lines from “Testimonial” by Rita Dove and artwork by muralist David Guinn.
