the Winchester Art Murals project
The Winchester Art Murals project is a beautification project increasing arts awareness and tourism in Old Town Winchester, Virginia's underutilized spaces. The project will begin in Old Town Winchester's Indian Alley focusing on bringing interesting art on the backs and sides of buildings.
Kim Johnston, creative consultant and project manager, has spearheaded the murals project and pairs building owners with artists based on the building owner's personal style. Local and regional artists are invited to participate as are artists from other areas thru a call for entry for each space.
Each mural, at this time, is funded separately through crowd-sourcing and local/regional sponsors and donors. The GoFundMe platform is currently used. See www.gofundme.com/winchesterartmuralsproject for more info.
Interested in having a mural painted on the interior or exterior of your building, are an artist or muralist interested in painting the town, or are a donor or sponsor? Please get in touch with creative consultant, Kim Johnston.
