Over the last few years I’ve come to love and really enjoy street art. I’ve always enjoyed roaming streets of towns and cities, but making a point to take in and appreciate street art has added to that love! Asheville, NC is well-known as a bohemian/artist community, so it’s no shock that loads of Asheville street art has popped up all over town. I wanted to share some of my personal favorites from my many walks through the River Arts District in West Asheville.
This Good Vibes silo is a symbol of West Asheville and is photographed frequently!
My dear friend + artist Andrea posing with/like the fish in this piece of art. Even though I had a hard time deciding, these two fish were definitely some of my favorites.
Be sure to look everywhere for the art.. This one is probably just bigger than a shoebox, and absolutely beautiful.
In amongst the street art in this area is a local skatepark: The Foundation Spot. Not only does it look super rad, it has a really cool story! So, it’s completely built upon donations: both financial and time. It’s tucked away behind some of the larger buildings and it was a lot of fun seeing skateboarders do their thing amongst the art.
You can truly feel the artistic spirit of this beautiful city. If you’re a lover of street art and find yourself in Asheville, I would highly recommend taking a walk in the River Arts District by the Wedge at Foundation (a favorite brewery of mine). On my recent stroll through here I instantly fell in love. Wherever you are in town be sure to keep an eye out for the amazing Asheville street art.
