    Where to Find Street Art in Chattanooga

    Chattanooga street art

    Often overlooked in favor of larger cities like Nashville, Chattanooga, Tennessee has a thriving street art and mural culture if you know where to look. There are many neighborhoods beyond the tourist district that have been revitalized with colorful paint.

    Most of these works are commissioned, rather than illegal “tags,” and are by local artists rather than those brought in. Groups like Public Art Chattanooga and The McCallie Walls Mural Project have set up these projects. For a list of murals around town, visit this page from the Chattanooga Convention & Visitor’s Bureau.

    Southside

    The city’s trendiest neighborhood is a great place to start your street art journey. The polka dot wall in an alleyway off Main Street (across from Clyde’s On Main) is a popular spot for photos, but the artist isn’t listed, as is the pizza mural at Southside Pizza.

    Another food-centric mural is the donut by Joseph Giri at Koch’s Bakery, above, where you can step inside for a real pastry. The wall next to Main Street Meats has its own colorful pieces, as does the walls around Get Built Chattanooga CrossFit.

    Alongside The Crash Pad Chattanooga is the “Traveling Musician,” painted by The Artist Seven, which honors the city’s musical and railroad history. The neighboring Chattanooga Choo Choo also has some temporary art pieces on the interior side that faces Songbirds.
