Mural artwork has the power to change the face of a community, transform ordinary walls into a canvas and spark conversation. Here in Virginia Beach, the Oceanfront is full of jaw-dropping murals that we think speak for themselves.
Nestled within the Oceanfront area is the ViBe Creative District, Virginia Beach’s cultural arts enclave, which is a hub for artisans of all disciplines ranging from culinary, music and traditional art to leather working and woodworking. While you can find all manners of artwork within the quaint shops and coffeehouses that comprise the area, the district is a work of art in and of itself. Look no further than the murals, most of which were done by local artists, that fill the ViBe and the Oceanfront with wonder and color. Stop by and see these murals for yourself and you’ll see exactly what we mean.
Art is all around you at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront. On the walls of many of the districts restaurants and local shops, you'll see a huge variety of local and national artists represented. Here is where you can find a few of our favorites.
