ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - If you take a walk through Grandin Village these days, you might notice it is a bit more colorful.

Saturday, the Grandin Village Business Association, Roanoke Arts Commission, and Roanoke Natural Foods Co+op unveiled new art in the form of “The Art Walk,” a new series of murals by Virginia artists.

The murals are in the alley between the Co+op and Pinnacle Bank. The project had been in the works since early 2021.

”Roanoke is about uniting our community and culture. There is a lot of art, artists, art events. Very culturalized, and I think this just enhances that. We should probably do this in other parts, other neighborhoods throughout the community because many appreciate art and I think it should be exposed to all,” said Salem resident Valerie Pohlsen.

The total cost of the project is estimated to be around $15,000.
