New murals add color to Old Town businesses

Painted by muralist and Alexandria-based artist Meg Biram, the mural includes a rainbow of colors and text reading “Old Town Alexandria.” A bench directly in front of the artwork provides visitors and residents the perfect place to pose for a photo.
The mural was funded by members of the Old Town Boutique District, ALX Community and other area sponsors. OTBD announced the installation of the mural on July 9, and Biram painted it shortly after.
The project’s purpose is to engage visitors through interactive art that portrays the character of Old Town and its passion for inclusivity, according to a news release. >
