December 3, 2021—Carolina Beach, NC--- The Carolina Beach Mural Project today announced the themes for their Spring murals. Mural #9 and Mural #10 are commissioned opportunities open to all artists interested in submitting a proposal. The winning concepts will capture the spirit of Carolina Beach with a permanent installation on a public wall donated by a landlord.


Mural #9: Fun & Joy
The location of Mural #9 is 915 N. Lake Park Blvd, the home of local businesses such as Island Wellness Center, Island Oasis Salon & Spa and Salty Dog Yoga Studio. A little history about this space: This building was originally a popular roller-skating rink in the late 70’s- early 80’s. It was then turned into a beach bingo parlor and since has had many businesses within its building including a bike shop, used car lot, and Jeep rentals. We are giving very little direction to Artists in this RFP and hope that allows for even greater creativity. Expect to see this completed mural by early April. The deadline to submit proposals is February 15.

 

Mural #10: Cape Fear Kite Festival

This mural will celebrate the Cape Fear Kite Festival, an annual event that draws people from around the world to fly kites on the island. The location for Mural #10 is the Carolina BeachArcade located at 103 Carolina Beach Avenue North. A requirement for this mural is that it is to be painted in the Trompe L’oeil style (“trick of the eye”). The mural will be interactive—meaning visitors can pose in front of the mural and act as if they were actually flying a kite. Expect to see this completed mural by the end of April. The deadline to submit proposals is February 15.

The Carolina Beach Mural Project (CBMP) is a 501c3 non-profit dedicated to celebrating and preserving the history and culture of Carolina Beach through murals. The Public Art commissioned by the Carolina Beach Mural Project is scattered throughout the commercial and boardwalk districts, creating a cultural destination for Carolina Beach residents and visitors to the island.
