When most people hear the word Nashville, immediately they think of Music City – but Nashville’s art scene plays a big part here too. Murals aren’t just graffiti on the walls, they’re art that beautify the city.

Throughout the city, murals constantly pop up on the side of restaurants, shops or industrial buildings adding a nice, vibrant and unique look to its surroundings. After a long month gathering and going on a mural hunt, I’ve finally constructed an Instagram-Worthy list for everyone to explore for themselves, visitors and locals alike.

While the street art scene in Nashville keeps growing rapidly, I’ll update this list as the “Instagram-Worthy” murals pop up.

Share this blog with your friends to give their Instagram a more unique vibe. Comment down below if you think I’ve missed an Instagram-Worthy mural or tell us more about your favorites on this list! Have fun finding these murals — you won’t be disappointed.
