Hello! My name is Nicole Miller and I am working with Cindy Faith and the Historic Main Street Merchants Association to raise funds to bring a beautiful piece of artwork and history to our downtown. We are excited for this project, and it is set to begin in just a few weeks!!
The image chosen represents a Chincoteague Downtown from bygone time. It represents a time when downtown Chincoteague was a thriving destination, an important seaport, and the oyster capital of the United States. The Mural will be located on the blank side of the three-story building beside the Taylor Bank parking lot for all to enjoy!
Your support will be tax deductible and will go a long way to funding this beautiful artwork, which will be a focal point for our downtown for decades to come. The Historic Main Street Merchants are proud to introduce the artist who will be creating this beautiful mural!
