The inspiration for Mural #1 Welcome to Carolina Beach is a vintage postcard that invokes all the good feels of arriving at the beach for vacation. Our resident Artist, Susan Nuttall, updated the postcard to better reflect today's Carolina Beach visitors. The billboard will measure 16' x 32' is installed on posts. so it can easily be seen as one drives by on the way to the beach.
We invited local residents and artists to volunteer and paint this first mural. Over 50 people between the ages of 5 and 87 contributed to the painting of the mural. Check the back of the mural for signatures of everyone involved. Local builders donated all the materials and installed the mural for us. Thanks Bame Ace Hardware, LAT 34, Professional Builder Supply, Sherwin Williams, Snow Marine and Construction, Tidal Wave Construction, TOO Construction for your support, materials, manpower and skills. It is truly a community mural!
