Peer to Pier Murals

The Peer-to-Pier Project has been running for two years now. It is a city-wide effort to get public art shown where you might normally see obscene graffiti. This past year sponsors and planners of the event targeted the 10 piers beside the westbound lanes of Kanawha Boulevard, two each under each ramp, and six under the main lanes of Interstate 64 for the murals. Lori Brannon, a neighborhood planner with the city's Planning Department, got the idea for pier murals after seeing similar projects in other cities. Members on the city council adopted the idea and raised $23,000 from several sources, including Charleston’s FestivALL. Each year, hopeful participants submit their art propositions to the Task Force, and after a blind review 10 lucky people are chosen for the job. Each participant also receives $2,000 to create the art that they love. The real winner here, however, is the city of Charleston. Beautiful artwork highlights the streets and provides a brightness and beauty that you do not normally see in the city. The city plans on continuing the projects in the years to come as well.

Take a trip to the capital city of Charleston to experience the true beauty that is around the area. There are many attractions to keep you and your family busy for days at a time.
