Where to Find Street Art in Nashville, Tennessee - Wall Murals in Nashville - California Globetrotter

While Nashville has always prided itself on music and food, it has been embracing the insane artistic talent out there and turning plain ol’ walls into works of art! 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. Finding street art in major cities all over the world has become a favorite past time for any Instagram-lover. Many wall murals are even interactive while others want to share a message to the world.

Where to Find Street Art in Nashville, Tennessee - California Globetrotter (0)

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 in Downtown Nashville 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!

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, Poland too! 


Directly nest to the larger wings were a small pair of wings perfect for adorable babies or pets. We sat my mom’s dog down and he instantly became a photo star and every one suddenly wanted their picture with Freddy! All dogs go to heaven get 15 minutes of fame, right? 

Address: 302 11th Ave S. Gulch, Nashville, TN 37203

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.


Address: 2702 12th Ave S, Nashville, TN 37204

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!


Address: 2608 12th Ave S, Nashville, TN 37204

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!


Address: 12th Ave South, Nashville, TN 37204

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!

  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!

  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 : )
