Few things create the perfect photo backdrop quite like murals. Lucky for you, Nashville seems to be full of street art, and hidden gems and prominent displays can be found all over the city. All you need is some time to explore, an adventurous spirit and a friend (or two) to join you. Plus, you’ll need someone to capture your next profile picture.
