Carolina Beach has been a destination for live music for decades. This wall will showcase the Beach Music Festival which would have celebrated its 35th anniversary in 2020. The origins of beach music date back to the late 1940s with much of the phenomenon impacting teenagers and college students vacationing on Carolina beaches. From this period through the mid-1950s, during which a culture shift was taking place in the country, the hunger to hear this compelling music grew.
We haven't chosen the artist yet. We sent out a CALL FOR ARTISTS in late December. Depending on weather and funding, this mural could be completed in late winter or early spring 2021. The committee will review the submissions and choose a winner who will have 2-3 weeks to paint the mural once the wall has been prepped.
This wall is on the north facing side of Sea Witch Tiki Bar located on 227 Carolina Beach Ave N
