WILLIAMSBURG – Food Lion is not normally where one goes to view fine art, but that’s where the Williamsburg Public Art Council’s first commissioned mural was unveiled at a recent ceremony attended by city leaders, members of the Art Council, and business owners and residents of Midtown Row, which is adjacent to the site.
The bigger-than-life size painting of the state insect, the eastern tiger swallowtail butterfly, is the work of Silas Baker, a Hampton tattoo artist who beat out eight other candidates to win a contract to create the mural. Baker’s artwork is also on view inside the Precarious Beer Hall in Merchants Square. He set aside his tattoo inks in 2020 to pursue a full-time career in fine art.
