Virginia is for Lovers

Special 50th Anniversary Edition 3D LOVEwork

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Virginia is for Lovers,® a special 3D LOVEwork was created and will be featured at 50 Years of Love events at Virginia Welcome Centers June 21 through August 10. Events will offer all travelers visiting Welcome Centers the opportunity to take photos with the 3D artwork, receive a commemorative postcard of the LOVEwork and participate in a raffle for special prizes.

The artwork was created by award-winning artist Melanie Stimmell Van Latum, founder of We Talk Chalk, a 3D street painting company. Van Latum has created paintings for clients all over the world and has been awarded the title of Maestra Madonnari (master street painter and chalk artist) in both Italy and Germany.  She has created 18 historic murals in the Northern Neck of Virginia, and collaborated with the town of Montross to create their LOVE sign.
