Greetings from Buena Vista

A new “Greetings from Buena Vista” mural now greets all visitors downtown! The mural is located on the 21st street side of the Vinyl Cuts building, and features iconic images from Buena Vista and the area. Despite some rain, the mural was officially installed and dedicated on June 1, 2018.

The mural was designed and painted by local artist Melissa Wheeler and her team. Funding was provided by the Virginia Commission for the Arts and the City of Buena Vista, with support from the National Endowment of the Arts.
