Discover Purcellville presents “Words on a Fence”

This year’s community art project coordinated by Discover Purcellville is out on the streets for all to enjoy. Thirty talented local Artist donated their talent to paint a word on a fence, for Discover Purcellville’s Words on a Fence project. 

Discover Purcellville provided the cut-out words and let the artist create whatever they visioned. Michael Oaks of Discover Purcellville came up with the idea of painted words because he felt the community needed an art project that was uplifting, positive, and would bring a smile to every face when everyone viewed them. 

“We’ll be leaving the “Words on a Fence” out till the end of October, then they will be auctioned off on November 13 at 7 p.m. at the Purcellville Skating Rink,” said Oaks.

Discover Purcellville is a 501 (c)(4) community nonprofit. Two other upcoming Discover Purcellville events include The End of Summer Block Party Sept. 12 on 21st street featuring a free concert by The Bridge “the world’s best Led Zeppelin tribute band,” according to Oaks. 

Discover Purcellville will hold their 10th annual Purcellville Halloween Block Party, Saturday October 30. For additional info please email
