OCEANFRONT — The work at the intersection of 19th Street and Cypress Avenue, a new piece of public art within the ViBe Creative District, is a mural on the intersection pavement, a rainbow with cardinals —a beautiful work designed by a local artist and painted by volunteers this past month.

The project was completed in cooperation with the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art and Hampton Roads Pride.

Chesapeake artist Allison Termine’s design was choosen to represent welcoming all people within the city and to celebrate the creative spirit embodied by the district.
