The goal of the Beaver Street Art Project is to commission a work of art for the retaining wall at 27 East Main/Beaver Street that will:

  • Make our village more beautiful

  • Create a destination and stopping point in Wilmington

  • Pull the community together and reflect our historical sense of place

  • Give value to our community

  • Integrate the Beaver Street neighborhood into the flow of community activities
