ALTAVISTA, Va. (WFXR) — Residents and visitors of Altavista have a new piece of art to appreciate when spending time outdoors.

A LOVE Sign now stands at English Park near the picnic area and at entrances to the walking trails.

The vertical structure is made of stainless steel and depicts images of Altavista’s manufacturing history and iconic landmarks.

Images represent the old Lane smoke tower, the Altavista Colonels, STEM technology in both business and school programs, and children playing in the park. The images were wrapped by Creative Edge Design.

Altavista On Track, a non-profit organization supporting development in downtown Altavista, designed and commissioned the LOVE sign with funding from the Powell Grant and the Virginia Tourism Corporation.
