FB Event Callto Artists Aquarium Facade Murals

In collaboration with the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center, the City of Virginia Beach Cultural Affairs Department is looking to commission a mural artist(s) to design and paint a large mural that will transform the facade of the Virginia Aquarium into an inspiring, welcoming moment for visitors and passersby. This highly visible mural will bring a sense of arrival for guests, create curb appeal to the Aquarium building and enhance the region’s most popular tourist destination. The City seeks a wide range of submissions that celebrate the natural world and Virginia Beach’s local eco- and aquatic history while reflecting the Virginia Aquarium’s mission and spirit. All artistic styles are welcome. The artwork must be designed to be safely viewed by vehicular traffic arriving to the Aquarium at speeds of 0-40 mph.


Deadline for submissions is Friday, April 1, 2022 at 5 p.m. Email artsinfo@vbgov.com if you have any questions.

Please forward and share with your artist friends!
