Picture Perfect Murals
Looking for the perfect backdrop? Look no further than city walls turned to canvases for artists, from near and far.
Garden Scene, Oxford
Tucked in an alley off Main Street, where Choccolocco comes to a T, this "Garden Scene" looks reminiscent of Italy or Greece, especially with Sarah Cavender Metalworks' blue door next door.
Anniston's Mural Trail
While Anniston has begun a mural trail throughout the historic downtown area, in the alleys behind the Classic and the Peerless, visitors will find various hand-painted masterpieces from local artists, including the newly designated Freedom Riders National Monument Mural off Gurnee Avenue, commissioned by the Spirit of Anniston.
At Jacksonville High School's Football Stadium, one will find a tribute to veterans, an American flag waving in the wind, visible from hometown hero Ben Tomlinson's new smart house.
Riders along the Ladiga Trail know they've reached Piedmont by the visible mural just off the trail and Main Street, and next to the famous Solid Rock Cafe, visitors can also find an alley of artistic works, from Einstein to the Beatles.
