Josh Nolan’s Floating, Together is the first mural funded under a new pilot program by the Roanoke Arts Commission. The public/private funding strategy triples a city investment in getting more public facing art in place by partnering with interested property owners and neighborhood or business associations.
For this project, Roanoke-based artist Josh Nolan rallied resources from Benny’s Pizza and Downtown Roanoke, Inc. and the Roanoke Arts Commission to get a large mural in place facing Campbell Avenue. At 210 Fourth Street, SW, the mural is called Floating, Together, reflecting the collective isolation of the pandemic.
