WILLIAMSBURG — Midtown Row is getting its second mural later this month.
Artist Britt Flood, whose design was approved by the Williamsburg Public Art Council in January, will install the new mural on the Food Lion exterior, the city of Williamsburg announced. The mural will appear next to the “Papilio Glaucus” mural completed by Silas Baker in 2022.
“We are thrilled to be working with artist Britt Flood and excited to have her create the newest Williamsburg mural in Midtown Row,” council chair Robert Currie said. “Her work is bold, vibrant and ethereal.”
The mural — a “brightly colored, abstract illustration of greenways” — is intended to complement the first mural, which portrays a butterfly, Currie said. Flood’s mural includes bold hues of blues, red and orange.
Currie said the murals will create “a more interesting and dynamic public space that is fun to visit.”
Flood’s mural was chosen out of 13 designs submitted under the theme of “Community Connections.” Based in North Carolina, she has a goal to complete a mural in all 50 states, and the Williamsburg piece will be her first in Virginia, according to a city news release.
Work will be begin in mid-May and is slated for completion by Memorial Day.
