Mural Descriptions

    Featured Mural - Animal Discovery Den An impressive full wall mural in the Animal Discovery Den includes a variety of animals on a backdrop of where they may be found in the Park. Murals that show a variety of features are painted on all of the restroom walls and doors within the Park. Guests are delighted to find this special surprise and even ask if we have postcards of our rest rooms! You'll want to look closely to see the many animals the artist has cleverly weaved into his work. Amy Wald, Chimney Rock resident and artist, has painted murals of old postcards on buildings in Chimney Rock Village. You can't miss them as you stroll through the area.

    Mural Mention#1 Ladies Restroom at the Discovery Level gives the feeling of being outside in the bathroom here at Chimney Rock State Park with these beautiful murals.

    Mural Mention#2 Mens Restroom at the Discovery Level is also interesting experience and you get the feeling of being surrounded with nature in all directions.

    Mural Mention#3 The Sky Lounge Restrooms are on the same level with the Gift Shop and the feeling of being in the expansiveness of total nature is over powering to say the least. Even the ceilings become part of the overall illusions of being one with the great outdoors.

Mens Restroom Mural Mention #1

Ladies Restroom Mural Mention #2

Sky Lounge Restrooms Mural Mention #3

I love what you folks are doing. Several years ago we went to Exeter California to see their Mural trail. We spent hours in this little town looking at the murals and trying to find the hidden objects in each. We talked with the towns people, had lunch, shopped in the shops. I love the mural trails, and yours is going to be one of the best. Thanks for keeping us in the loop.

Art is everywhere in Asheville! This gorgeous mural of Dolly Parton by Gus Cutty is the newest mural you'll see in town. Gus created the mural with spray paint in 3 days. See it for yourself at Beauty Parade on Haywood Rd in West Asheville.

Love your mural artwork! The local references, the depiction of marvelous, beautiful, and colorful nature - landscapes, birds, animals, butterflies, and glorious flowers - invites close study and is very engaging!
