The expanding outdoor art scene in Nashville is more than just murals and the occasional sculpture. Increasing numbers of businesses are discovering the importance of upping their sign game. Particularly when you’re located in a fairly drab industrial area where all the buildings look the same, a bold sign can really make you stand out. Meghan Wood of I Saw the Sign has been building a business based on that idea. That giant “EAST” that you must have seen by now is her work, as is the art featured in Swayze lives! Her handiwork is seen here on the 720 at the Point building. “Fessey” is the name of the road out front and the business park 720 is in. The building is owned by Anchor Investments, which explains the second I Saw the Sign piece below. There is an event and workspace inside (see the 720 link) and at least two businesses call the building home: Aloompa, which makes custom apps for mobile devices, and Bed Roc, which provides technology consulting services, even for evil galactic empires. Whether the Bed Roc signs (see below) are Wood’s work is unclear – they don’t appear on her client showcase.
Located at 720 Fessey Park Roak. Fessey Park is southeast of the Fairgrounds, near the interstate. The main sign faces east, the “legacy” sign faces the road (south), while the Bed Roc metal sign is on the southwest corner and their painted sign is on the north side of the building, away from the road. This is an industrial area with easy parking. Amp up your tech game and enjoy the art!
