The Guide to Nashville Murals Part II: East Nashville


Those who live in East Nashville know that changes are happening. In the midst of growth, murals are popping up in some of the most unique places. Armed with my cell phone camera and my family, we hit the town to collect as many Nashville mural photos as we could. We found murals on fences, on buildings, in alleyways, and on curbs along the sidewalk. They come in all shapes and sizes and are painted by different artists. This little elephant appears on the curb as you drive down South 14th Street. Seeking out murals provided a fun treasure hunt for my daughter.

Allison was born and raised in the Midwest, which accounts for her straight-talking ways. Nashville has been her home since the end of 2014 and there is no looking back! Her husband, Lynn and two daughters, Ellis the threenager and 6-month-old Adeleine, fill her world with joy, exhaustion and glitter. When she's not brushing out tangled hair or cleaning spit-up off her leggings, she enjoys hiking, eating healthy foods, traveling, trying out new fun things to do in Nashville or reading books. She revels in laughing (many times at herself), meeting new people, and having deep meaningful conversations. (That kind of sounded like a dating profile). She has quite a few grey hairs, which proves she has wisdom, and a big heart made softer by the loss of three pregnancies. When she writes she pulls from the joy of the little moments with her girls, the humor in the everyday, her faith and her experiences in loss. Motherhood brings out all the feelings but she's found that when she is a part of a community of people doing life together, a little of the burden is removed. That's why she's honored to call Nashville home. You can read more from Allison at where she writes about motherhood, womanhood, and faith. You can also follow her on Facebook and Instagram.
