Do It For the 'Gram! A Guide to 12 of Nashville's Most Instagram Worthy Murals

Headed to Nashville, Tennessee soon? One of the can’t-miss highlights of your trip needs to be the incredibly photo-ready, Instagram worthy murals! With more than 100 murals in the city (and more being painted every day!), Nashville is just not Music City, but Mural City as well. 

In 2016, Nashville started their “Nashville Walls Project,” where artists from all over could come to create personalized pieces. Since then, the numbers of murals have grown substantially throughout the city and have given Nashville a flair that is uniquely it’s own.

By no means is this a comprehensive list of murals - Camels & Chocolate has one of the most comprehensive lists I’ve seen - but this is a great starting point for reference!

Easily one of the most famous murals in Nashville, these wings are 20-feet high and intricately decorated (do you see the guitars?). Get there early because there is always a line for this one.
