Nashville Walls Street Art Project, Tennessee, 2016

The Nashville Walls Project, sponsored by Gibson Custom Guitars, will bring eight of the world’s top street artists to design and paint a series of murals across the walls of some of downtown Nashville’s oldest buildings, between 1 May and 1 July 2016.

The interactive event encourages the public to watch the artists paint and chat with them while they create. The artists who will participate are Herakut (Germany), Rone (Australia), Niels Muelman (Amsterdam), Adele Renault (Amsterdam), Hush (England), Mars1 (USA), Mike Shine (USA) and Curiot (Mexico)

The idea behind the project is to encourage art, especially public art, in all its forms. “Nashville has always been known as an arts city, and the ‘Nashville Walls Project’ will add to the City’s ‘visual arts’ image.
