This is another of the many murals found at the old tire factory on 19th near Herman, this one featuring, well, walking with bees. I have noticed bees and wasps as a recurring motif in some of the local murals. This one is a @DoughJoe piece (otherwise known as Yusef Hubb). Turns out the festival that produced these murals got a nice shoutout from the Nashville Scene as a Writer’s Choice in the “Best of” issue – “Best Public Art Project.” And while you’re there, check out this little bit of snark from the Scene – Best Public Art: Murals That Don’t Involve the Word ‘Nashville.’ Hey, we’re all about leaving no art behind here at the blog, but I hear ya, Ashley Spurgeon, I hear ya. As for this non-“Nashville”-containing mural, it’s in the part of the factory that’s often behind a locked gate, so it gets the “hidden art” designation.

See the pin for Part 1 on the map. Located at the north end of the 800 block of 19th Street N., at the corner of Herman Street. It’s impossible to miss. Street parking is very haphazard. There is a lot of to see here, and also a lot of overgrown weeds (depending on the time of year) so wear the right shoes!
