Nauticus will officially unveil the City of Norfolk’s first pier mural on Thursday, Aug. 23 at a special edition of their “Party on the Pier.”

The mural, created by local artists Rick Nickel and Aimee Bruce, commemorates two, significant mile markers along the pier.

There’s a red buoy on the pier to represent “Mile Zero” for the Intracoastal Waterway, a 3,000-mile inland waterway running along the Atlantic coast from Boston around the tip of Florida to the Gulf.

The second buoy, a yellow one, represents “Mile Zero” on the Elizabeth River Trail, which runs between Harbor Park and Norfolk International Terminals.

The mural features a boldly-colored, swirling design, taking inspiration from the southern route of the Intracoastal Waterway that was once known as “The Magenta Line.”

You can see the mural and enjoy music, craft beer, food and more tomorrow at Nauticus from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Dogs and children are welcome!
