Germantown and Salemtown, which lie between Jefferson and I-65 to the north and south, Rosa Parks and the river east and west, have undergone an extraordinary transformation in the last few years. One of the oldest neighborhoods in Nashville is filled with new, new, new. Even in a boom town like Nashville, what’s happened here is hard to fathom. A low-income neighborhood has been turned into a raft of condo complexes, brand new homes everywhere, and a handful of beautiful renovations. In an area with so much that is brand new, not a lot of public art is found. But there’s some, like on this renovated house across from Monell’s. I include it here because of the playful paintings in the windows. They are Alic Daniel pieces like the one featured in Off the wall (Part 2), but less frenzied. A Google street view picture from March 2016 does not show the paintings, so these are fairly new.
Located at 1228 Sixth Avenue North, next to St. Mark Baptist Church. Street parking is available but a little tough. This is a private home, so be respectful. Little’s Fish Company is a couple of doors down. Grab some fresh fish and enjoy the art!
