Wings aka What Lifts You MuralIt’s easy to see why Wings is the most photographed Nashville Mural. The beautiful 20-foot tall wings, painted by Kelsey Montague, are centrally located in the Gulch and they’re just so.. pretty! You’ll probably need to wait in line for a photo with this mural but it’s worth the wait. Check out the hashtag #WhatLiftsYou to see all of Kelsey’s murals around the world. Oh, and don’t forget a photo of your pup (see below). Kelsey painted a tiny pair of wings for our tiny four-legged friends. Cue: Awww.
In the heart of 12 South, just a few steps away from Reese Witherspoon’s Draper James, is the I Believe in Nashville Mural by Adrien Saporiti. It’s one of the most popular murals in town and has sadly been vandalized multiple times in recent years. Nashville always steps up and restores the mural which, ironically, represents our city’s unity.
The Silo Mural of Lee Estes is hard to miss as it stands 200 feet high on an abandoned grain silo in a bustling up-and-coming area of town, the Nations. Australian artist, Guido van Helten, decided to paint his subject, 91 year old Lee Estes, after meeting him in Nashville and being inspired by his charity work in the community.
We were all love at first sight with Donald Drawbertson’s funky yet sexy Drippy Lips Mural in Hillsboro Village. It has brightened up the alley way between UAL and Fido, becoming a hot spot for pictures. The team at Eastside Murals helped bringing this beauty to life and we couldn’t love it more.
Speaking of love-y murals, it doesn’t get more sweet and southern than this one! The Love Ya’ll Mural is on the side of Pencil and Paper Co. in Wedgewood Houston neighborhood.
Where my Preds fans at? Here’s your perfect photo op before the next home game. This mural, by DCXV, is a take on the I Believe in Nashville murals (we featured one on this list. The other one is at Marathon Music Works). You can find this Preds mural on the side of Bridgestone Arena. No excuse not to snap a selfie.
Did you know that the faces of sunflowers always follow the sun? Just one reason I love this larger than life mural on the side of Import Flowers in Sylvan Park. There’s also a mural of a very British red telephone box – next to the flowers – if you want to get two snaps in one stop.
The Nashville Looks Good On You Mural (that’s a TN for Tennessee, not TM for Trademark) is on the Anderson Group’s office building in Hillsboro Village. It’s simple yet direct.. Nashville looks good on you.. and you.. and you. By the way, there’s another “Nashville Looks Good On You” Mural on 12th Avenue behind Frothy Monkey.
The Kind Way Mural, painted by Rebekah Rinehart and Sarah Gail Nelson, founder and co-founder of The Kind Way. There’s a YouTube video that explains the meaning behind the mural and what’s next in their kindness movement.
