Nashville Mural and Street Art Tour
Tour some of Nashville’s most popular murals. Murals has exploded the last few years throughout Nashville and surrounding areas. Mix in society’s love for selfies and social media it is no wonder there are often lines of people at some of the most popular murals around town. Some of the murals have reached so much popularity that they are becoming destinations themselves like the AT&T building aka Batman building. Nashville’s growth is hard to keep up with even as a local I’m impressed to see entire new skyscrapers and buildings while driving in areas of town I use to live in. New murals seem to be popping up all over the place and some murals are replaced every few months it seems while others have been around for years. In the process of photographing these murals, in one week there was three new murals and two the next week. I photographed what I believe is 98% of the murals in Nashville and surroding areas as of October 2019 and try to update with any new ones I see.
Many murals are painted with an artist that doesn’t live in Nashville but that is changing as more local artist make their mark.
Sure you can pay to take a mural tour but here is my best effort to show you every mural in town as of Fall 2019..
