What is CRE8IV?

CRE8IV (pronounced "Creative") is a community-building, arts-infused initiative launched in 2019 as part of RACVB's placemaking and public art efforts.  Designed to enhance the region for residents and visitors, CRE8IV has grown to include more than 44 mural projects and sculptures with more to come in 2024.


CRE8IV Murals and sculptures are 100% donor funded. If you would like to make a donation to the CRE8IV: Transformational Art efforts, click here!
