5 Asheville Murals


5 of Asheville's Historic Public Murals

     Asheville's players of music, tellers of mountain tales and ghost stories step out from large outdoor art murals and remind us of Asheville's romantic past at the 2017 dedication of four outdoor historical murals in the downtown area of Asheville. These murals were dedicated to the Appalachian Mural Trail to shine a light on the rich heritage of our mountains and talented local artists. This will enhance the visitor's experience to the Asheville area through educating them about our rich heritage through art, while sharing the creativity of the mountains.
