Van Clief Nature Area
The first ever Charlottesville Mural Project collaboration with the Town of Scottsville is visible on the left as you travel south into town along Valley Street. In an effort to draw attention to an often overlooked community asset, key stakeholders, including local businesses, Scottsville Architectural Review Board, and residents commissioned this mural by Indianapolis artist, Emily Gable to mark the entrance of the Van Clief Nature Area. The CMP partnered with Scottsville Center for Arts and Nature to identify key elements from the natural environment to be included in the design. The final mural also incorporated leaf “arrows” painted on pavement to direct folks to the park entrance. For more from artist Emily Gable, visit here.
