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.

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.
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.
The Carolina Beach Mural Project is thankful for the Island Arts Culture Alliance. The IACA is a non-profit organization working to ensure that Carolina Beach and Kure Beach have have a vibrant, vital arts environment. This organization provided the seed money for CBMP to begin their Public Arts Program.
