BLUEFIELD, V.a.(WVVA)- Thanks to Rally Southwest Virginia, Downtown Bluefield will soon include a new piece of scenery, a mural.
Stakeholders with an interest in seeing the downtown area 'boom' are requesting submissions from local artists with a serious interest in creating the mural.
"We're looking for someone interested in painting the mural and being part of a community event and working with other artists. So if you work well with other artists and looking to do a mural then we're looking for you." Savannah Carabin, Founder of the Bluefield Virginia Stakeholder’s group
"Calling all Bluefield artists! Our Rally Southwest Virginia sub-committee has been tasked with creating a mural. Now is your time to stake your claim in this mural being created in Downtown Bluefield, VA. Bring your ideas for a mural and bring an artist friend. "
Rally Southwest Virginia is a program providing communities with grant funds for projects that advance the community's vision and supports business development, a mission for the Bluefield Virginia Stakeholders group.
A mural will help to further beautify the downtown area, where many small businesses are up and running. The stakeholders group is encouraging locals to shop small and support businesses in their community, to keep them all up and running.
