- Make CB Public Art accessible anywhere in the world.
- Shine a light on our talented North Carolina Artists.
-Showcase our beautiful Island and our murals.
4-Inspire new Artists to just "go for it".

In partnership with CBMP, the Island Women Literacy Committee is rolling out a program geared to kids ages 5-12 years old. A plaque with unique QR codes will be place at kid's eye level to scan and learn. Activities will encourage kids and their families to interact, learn about the murals, use their imagination and encourage them to read more about the different mural subjects. The 1st phase of the program includes all the murals in the downtown business district.
Our Board of Directors are comprised of enthusiastic and talented volunteers working together to find funding to commission experienced North Carolina artists and install amazing murals on the walls of local Carolina Beach buildings. If you are interested in sponsoring a mural, helping us with fundraising, donating to support the efforts or just want more information, contact us!
Public murals attract new local businesses, help bring customers to pre-existing locations, and boost the economy of an area. Public Art celebrates the history of a town in an engaging and experiential manner. Carolina Beach has a rich and diverse history and many stories that need to be shared with both visitors and the beach community.
The mission of the Carolina Beach Mural Project is to celebrate our eclectic history, inspire our beach community, welcome and engage visitors and become a destination of ART for Everyone through murals depicting life in Carolina Beach. We find walls, commission NC Artists and fund each project through sponsorships, events, donations and private partnerships.

Public Art represents all mediums of art whose form, function and meaning are created for the general public through a public process. Public art is visually and physically accessible to the public - it is installed or staged in public space or the public realm, usually outside. Public art embodies public or universal concepts rather than commercial, partisan or personal concepts or interests, and it has clear aesthetic qualities in form or theme. Notably, public art is also the direct or indirect product of a public process of creation, procurement, and/or maintenance.
There is an order of events that the organization has established to stay true to their mission & and maintain fairness for funding Public Art in Carolina Beach.
