Easy Wall Murals to Find in Nashville

Not only is Nashville home to Country Music and is nicknamed “Music City”, but it’s also home to A LOT of amazing Wall Murals / Street Art.

We recently visited Nashville, on the day before Christmas Eve, a Friday night and discovered it was a pretty sleepy town before the holidays. The bars weren’t quite hopping as one would expect and the next day, Christmas Eve, turns out all the touristy locations are closed! Who’da known!? So, we decided to make an afternoon out of it and find as many wall murals as we could!

Prior to discovering the wall murals in Nashville, I had read a lot of posts about amazing street art popping up all over the world. Some of it I really enjoyed and other bits, I couldn’t see what the big deal was.

Creative and innovative artists are taking to the streets to express themselves and transform an empty, plain side of a building into a masterpiece and people are flocking around the world to find these amazing murals. I have to say, I have quickly become OBSESSED and now search for street art everywhere I go! Plus, the make for the perfect Instagram moment!

1. Kelsey Montague #WhatLiftsYou

When I saw these beautiful wings, I knew I had to find these first and foremost! They’re absolutely amazing and I had never seen anything like them before. Turns out Kelsey Montague travels the world and creates beautiful, interactive wall murals for people to have fun with and share on social media. I can now say, I’m a huge fan!

2. “I Believe in Nashville”

While in Nashville, it was only fitting that I found the motto of Nashville, created by DCXV Industries. Artist Adrien Saporiti began to share his artwork around Nashville, with wall murals around town that inspire city pride.

3. Draper James Blue & White Stripes

Directly opposite from the “I Believe in Nashville” mural, on the side of the Draper James boutique, you’ll find the blue and white stripes. Not exactly a wall mural, but fun nonetheless to take some pictures in front of!

4. Green Pea Salon Flower Mural

Along the side of the very stylish hair Green Pea Salon is the vibrant and happy wall mural full of flowers to bring any rainy day! Yes, when I went it was pouring rain, but it certainly cheered up my gloomy day! It was like frolicking through a prairie hill with spring flowers!

5. “Make Music, Not War”

Just opposite the field of flowers mural, is the ‘Make Music, Not War” wall mural, which was an added bonus upon finding the flower mural! Naturally, as Nashville is nicknamed “Music City” I needed to take a picture here!

It definitely seems to me that of any city in the world, Nashville might be one of the best places to find so many different wall murals in one place! I wish we had had more time to find the dozens of other beautiful wall murals that fill the streets of Nashville with creative and colorful images. But I know I’ll be back and I’ll add to this each time I go!

At 14 I started traveling the world with my parents and was hooked! By 21 I was studying abroad in Heidelberg, Germany. By 26 I sold all of my belongings and bought a one way ticket to Germany to teach English. Little did I know, I'd meet the love of my life and end up traveling to the most romantic and idyllic towns in Europe and becoming a long-term expat in Bavaria!

  1. I love street art. I have a special Pinterest board where I pin all the street art posts I come across. Then I check it for local sightings wherever I am. I am pinning this post now.

  2. I love Nashville, but one of the things that we didn’t do while we were there was hunt for all of the murals! Sounds like I need another trip back!

  3. Lolo you seem to be very good at finding street art. I’m so upset that I can’t find anywhere, while everybody else keeps bragging about their findings. The inly place I could find some was in Dresden. Very beautiful street art in Nashville. #TheWeeklyPostcard

  4. Lovely art and photos! Those wings!! I too am a big fan of street art and have been spending a lot of time looking for it. It’s interesting to see how different cities have different styles. Here in LA, the style varies depending on which part of town you’re in. Fascinating! #Theweeklypostcard

  5. I still have not made it to Nashville but when I do I will definitely be on the lookout for street art. You found some great ones and I love the fun pics that you took. Thanks for sharing on #TheWeeklyPostcard.

  6. Like you I was sceptical about Street Art, then I was commissioned to do a magazine article on it and now I too am obsessed. I want to see a pair of those wings now! Will Stumble #TheWeeklyPostcard

  7. I am getting obsessed with wall art too. I am starting with going around Los Angeles taking pictures of everything I can find (not that easy since LA is big). So great you found so many cute murals in Nashville. The wings and butterflies ones are so beautiful! #TheWeeklyPostcard
