Bower LOVE Sign Installation & Ribbon Cutting

Friday, June 30th, was the official installation and ribbon cutting of our brand new LOVE sign here at Bower Center for The arts! This sign was made possible through a Virginia Tourism grant and will be a new destination in their LOVEWORKS program.
One of the most exciting aspects of our sign is that it was designed and painted completely by Liberty High School art students! We're wowed with their hard work and talent, this piece is amazing. Be sure to stop by and see it for yourself, snap a photo and tag us on social media!
