VIRGINIA BEACH — When the coronavirus pandemic has subsided and tourists return to Virginia Beach, artist Sam Welty wants people to remember the “helpers.”
So he’s in the process of painting a 7,000 square-foot mural on the back wall of an Oceanfront hotel to honor healthcare workers, first responders and service providers.
“The mural is dedicated to all the people who are making a difference,” Welty, 44, said. “There are all kinds of people doing the right thing and this mural is for them.”
The mural will feature the images of a doctor, a nurse, a firefighter, a police officer, a grocery worker and a delivery person.
