The inspiration for this mural will be the Boardwalk, Amusement Carnival and the Fireworks which light up the summer sky with brilliant flare.
The Carolina Beach Boardwalk has been photographed, painted and celebrated for decades. Known as the “Playground of the Carolina’s”, the Boardwalk has always been a gathering place for both residents and guests. The Dance Pavilion, Britts Donuts, the Carnival with it’s Ferris Wheel, grand fireworks illuminating the boardwalk, concerts, the old water slide and Steel Pier all play a part in the memories of those who vacationed in Carolina Beach. Completely renovated and rebuilt in the 1990s – early 2000s, the Carolina Beach Boardwalk was originally constructed in 1887 and was one of the first attractions for Carolina Beach vacationers. Today, it has a claim to fame as one of the only Beach Boardwalks on the North Carolina coastline.
We haven't chosen the artist yet. We will be sending out a CALL FOR ARTISTS later this year. Depending on weather and funding, this mural could be completed in late spring/early summer of 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 mural will be on the west facing and south facing walls of Hurricane Alleys that is on the boardwalk.
