The three designs from a local muralist feature landmarks, icons, and colors that are uniquely TR.

Your favorite new Instagram-able spots are loading. Three Travelers Rest businesses tapped Blank Canvas Mural Company — which painted the Goodwill mural and the Cartwright Food Hall mural — to paint murals as part of the city’s façade improvement program:

  • Loftis Printing | 301 S. Main St. | Inspired by a vintage postcard with giant letters spelling out Travelers Rest with illustrations inside each letter including former resident and Marine Chico Bolin, the Skyland Drive-In, and the Spring Park Inn
  • Urban Hare | 106 S. Main St. | A vintage European poster-like scene of a cyclist, a hare, and Paris Mountain in the background
  • TR’s Oriental | 331 S. Main St. | Featuring the slogan “Where Travelers Come to Rest” surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains, a lake, and puffy white clouds in the signature colors of TR (blue, orange, and yellow)

The art is 50% funded by the City of Travelers Rest. You can support the fundraising efforts for the other 50%.
