On our second visit to Nashville, we happened to be there on Christmas Eve and I naively thought that with a nickname like “Music City” with a row of Honky Tonks that play from 10am-3am, I thought it was a city that never sleeps. Boy was I wrong. Turns out, many things just so happen to be closed on Christmas Eve. Not that I’m complaining as I totally 100% support this. But what to do, what to do in Nashville on Christmas Eve, you might ask? Why, find street art of course! It’s obviously one of the best free things to do in Nashville and always open!

So, we decided to make an afternoon out of it and find as many wall murals in Downtown Nashville as we could! We hit up a few of Nashville’s best eatries before hunting down some quick street art murals!

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!

Hopefully this little guide to Nashville’s street art brings some color to your life and a whole lotta fun! There are a ton of wall murals in Nashville and I certainly didn’t get to them all but these were some of the best wall murals in Nashville, Tennessee! There are more than 50 murals in Nashville that you should see, but to visit them all, you will certainly need a long photosesh to find all of Nashville’s most Instagrammable spots! 

The Nashville Walls Project brings in artists from around the world to liven up the walls and streets of Nashville and below are the easy murals we happened to find.

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! Today, the Nashville mural wings are considered to be the most popular wall mural in Nashville and it’s not hard to see why! Found more Kelsey Montague art in Wroclaw, Polandtoo!

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!

Replies to Easy Wall Murals to Find in Nashville

  1. 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!

  2. 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

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. I love this post, and I love more that you are in them. I will now probably pinch this idea because it makes the street art more effective. I owe you.

  7. Beautiful street art there and I like that you’ve shared the addresses so its easier to find! Pretty sure you’ve sold me on Nashville and Kentucky now 😉 #TheWeeklyPostcard

      1. Yeh festive season can do that. I’ve only been once as a kid, we went to DC, Orlando (Disney World) and the Florida Keys. Mostly faint memories. So much to see when i do!

  8. I LOVE street art — what a fantastic collection of places to see it. These will definitely make my list of things to do when we visit Nashville.

  9. Great pics. I particularly like the wings! Will have to look out for that artist elsewhere. I know my daughter would adore them too. Thanks for linking #citytripping

  10. Thanks for sharing I love this street art the Kelsey Montague one is my favourite. Going to check out your other street art posts. Thanks for the awsome pins and for sharing with #faraway files
    (and have an amazing honeymoon! )

  11. Are you a travel or fashion blogger these days Lolo? hee hee just joking. You look fabulous and I particularly like the wings. Hooray for street murals and thanks for sharing them with us on #FarawayFiles

  12. Oh I LOVE these, Lolo! Thanks so much for sharing on #FarawayFiles. The photos are great and I’m in love with the wings. Nashville has been on my list for a while now. This looks really cool.

  13. I always wonder where people find all of the amazing street art. Do they just wander around and find them or do they know where to look? That being said, I love that you included the address so other people can see it for themselves. The flower mural is gorgeous. #mondayescapes

  14. I LOVE street art and have also become obsessed with finding it while traveling! These are some amazing pieces and I’ll definitely be seeking them out when I finally make it to Nashville! Thanks for sharing 😀

  15. I wish Chattanooga would follow suit and add some more murals. These are gorgeous and really add to the feel. And the wings!!! I’ve seen them in other cities, but not in Nashville. Time to go back and get pics with them!

  16. I loved your Louisville ones and these are great too, especially the wings. A great way to pass the time when everything conspires against you!
    #mondayescapes

  17. I never used to give street art a second thought until I started reading stories like yours and now I am hooked! I’m in Penang at the moment and have really enjoyed the street art tour, I expect you had fun on yours as well. I Have to agree with the majority of the comments, the wings are spectacular but I’m also rather partial to Green Pea Salon Flower Mural. Pinned for future reference. #feetdotravel

  18. Fabulous photos – love the wings!! Think you’d love Cambridge, MA and the Graffiti Alley there… we were in Boston for a week and went to Veggie Galaxy (this amazing veggie/vegan diner) and just happened to pass this amazing graffiti alley on our way there. Many times. As we kept going back for the great food. And photos 😉

  19. How fun to find these during your time in Nashville! The Flower Mural is definitely my favorite of the ones in your post. Haven’t been to TN yet, but will definitely have to check these out if we ever make it there. Thanks for sharing!

  20. Those wings are absolutely gorgeous! I want to see them – the photograph is just great! Love street art so would love to see all of these (wings first though!!!!) and then those flowers!!! #feetdotravel

  21. I love street art and these look really vibrant and colourful. Street art, the world over is a mirror of the place’s culture and times. An expression of unknown and unsung artists.

  22. My home state!! Both of my brothers live in Nashville, but I’ve never seen these as we don’t go downtown much. I will definitely make a venture down there now! You have some great poses and pics here. Love love love it!

  23. What a fantastic site!! Loved the pics, the addresses that were attached plus the extra links. Very nice. Can’t wait to sightsee : )

  24. OMG love this! I just went to Nashville for the first time in June, and while I saw a couple of murals, I focused most of my attention on the city’s food and music sites. BUT, I’ve already told my husband I want to go back, and mural-spotting is already on the to-do list!

    (And can I also just say that I’m pretty much in love with all the outfits you’re wearing in this post?!? Because I am!)

  25. It still amazes me that I’ve never been to Nashville, I’ve certainly thought about visiting for long enough It’s going on the (ever-growing) list and these tips are so helpful. Thank you!

  26. I’ve been dying to get myself to Nashville! I’ve been to Memphis but not Nashville and I’m kinda sad I haven’t made it there yet. Definitely saving this for when I go!

  27. We go to Nashville often, but never explored other areas. My next trip will have to include this. Thanks for the info. By the way, I found your blog from Sharon of Exploring Our World.
