Public art is transformative for cities like Wheeling. It helps support local artists and visually tell a story about what makes our city unique and what’s most important to us. Not to mention it turns brick walls and overlooked spaces into colorful canvases that make a walk down the street a lot more interesting.
The Wheeling Arts and Cultural Commission is excited to continue growing Wheeling’s public art scene with its latest initiative. The commission recently released a request for proposals (RFP) for two mural locations at The Bridge Tavern. The murals will be located on the back Main Street and Tenth Street facades of the newly renovated Bridge Tavern.
