To people around the country, and even the world, Atlanta is known for its urban culture, musical influence, and its fast city lifestyle. However, everyone seems to forget that Atlanta is home to some of the best street art and graffiti that this country has to offer. Let’s dive into the TUC 5 places to see great street art in the Big A’.
Number 5: Cabbagetown
Cabbagetown, Atl has an array of street art. The majority of it is located along Tenille Street and the Wylie Street Wall. This is just one of the many murals that cover the walls in this town and it is clear to see why it’s such an attraction.
Number 4: East Atlanta Village (EAV)
EAV offers live music, retro shops and a few pubs but they also have a few street murals that are sure to catch your eye. You can begin your tour of the EAV at the GraveYard Tavern and then make your way to Flat Shoals Road.
Number 3: Little 5 Points
Little 5 Points is always sure to offer a great time. It’s a bit of a step up from the EAV considering that it has more shops and quite a few restaurants. It is filled with a colorful array of shop-fronts and on just about every corner and alleyway you can find eye-grabbing artistry.
Number 2: Belt Line
The Belt Line is one of the most popular attractions that Atlanta has to offer. It stretches for just over 22 miles so it is great for riding bikes, going for a run, or walking your dog. The murals span the entire 22 miles so it is a great way to catch some scenery while enjoying the beauty of the day.
Number 1: Krog Street Tunnel
The Krog Street Tunnel has graffiti and murals from over 300 different street artists.
Anyone can come here and show off the skills that they have. It is a short walk from one end to the other, but it’s packed with art of different sizes, fonts, and styles. For you music buffs out there, this is where Young Thug filmed the music video for his infamous song, ‘Thief in the Night’.
This isn’t all the art that Atlanta has to offer, but it is definitely some of the best. Next time you’re in town, be sure to come and check out the skill work of Atlanta’s natives.
