Charleston's Call for Mural Artists
In the words of the RFP:
"The proposed public arts murals shall be applied to the interstate support piers on both sides of Virginia Street. The artwork on the 12 piers must be applied to the entire circumference of the piers starting 2 feet above the ground and ending 12 feet above the ground.
The main requirement of the installation is that each pier must celebrate West Virginia’s Sesquicentennial, our 150th birthday.
