Instagrammer’s Guide to Wall Murals

1. Wynwood Walls- Miami, Florida

Tucked away in one of Miami’s most hip neighborhoods you’ll find the walls of Wynwood. Covered in graffiti and street art, The Wynwood Walls came to be in 2009. The late Tony Goldman was on the hunt for something bright and beautiful to transform the warehouse district and looked to create a space where people could gather and enjoy art. To date, the walls have been covered by 50 artists representing 16 counties.

2. Gum Wall- Seattle, Washington

Take a wrong turn near Seattle’s Pike Place Market and you may just find yourself amongst a world of old gum. For over 20 years this alleyway has been covered in just about every color and brand of gum you could imagine. The stench of old gum might turn you off, but hey it makes for a unique backdrop!

3. Wing Wall- Nashville, Tennessee

Outlined in all white and spanning about 20 feet high, the WhatLiftsYou wings have probably made an appearance on your Instagram feed once or twice before. Created by Kelsey Montague, the wings look to inspire others to share more about what inspires them in their life.
