The Charlottesville Mural Project showcases the talents of artists and designers while creating a more interesting visual landscape in Charlottesville.
Partnering together for Paint & Poetry, The Charlottesville Mural Project (CMP) and New City Arts produced 3 text-based murals in the Charlottesville Area. Paint & Poetry is a public mural series that incorporates poetry into public art in the Charlottesville area.
At Charlottesville High School, CMP and New City Arts worked with CHS teachers to create a mural designed by art students featuring a poem by a creative writing student.
At The Graduate Hotel on the historic UVA Corner, CMP and New City Arts worked with mural artist David Guinn and former US Poet Laureate and UVA Professor, Rita Dove. This mural was made possible by Graduate Hotels and the Office of the Provost and the Vice Provost for the Arts at UVA.
