The murals throughout the city are created by talented artists. If you head downtown, you’re bound to come across a mural created by Derek Gores. An artists from the Space Coast, Gores has had his artwork featured with Prada, Playboy, and the Kentucky Derby. You can find his work near the Kilted Mermaid.
The Vero Beach Mural Project is what made all of the murals possible. The non-profit organization was created to make the downtown district more artsy. Certainly, that mission has been accomplished.
