Mural artist, Victor Ving, and photographer, Lisa Beggs, are on a cross-country road trip in a RV creating interactive murals that will become future landmarks. The ‘Greetings From’ tour seeks to create public art that will capture the pride of local residents for their hometowns and spark the interest of visitors and tourists. The two artists will travel to select cities throughout the United States for at least a year painting murals inspired by vintage large-letter postcards.

The classic “Large Letter” postcard from the 30’s-50’s features the name of a city with different images of landmarks from that particular city in each of the letters. The postcard inspired murals that will be painted by The Greetings From team will use aerosol art to showcase modern or perhaps even undiscovered landmarks as well as historical elements from the cities they visit.

Lisa and Victor packed their city lives into an RV to travel from city to city creating their artwork. At each stop, Lisa’s photography and insider knowledge from locals will serve as reference for letters in the mural given back to the cities. Local artists and businesses will be invited to collaborate. Relevant sponsors can be creatively incorporated into each mural as well. Sponsors also have the opportunity to advertise on the body of the RV for great exposure as the duo travels throughout the country. After each mural is complete, the documented story will be shared through social media (Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter) and blog posts. The entire project will eventually be compiled into a comprehensive publication with a series of linen postcards.

Nothing to show. The tour hasn't started yet!
