UPDATE: This mural was destroyed by the March 3, 2020 tornado.
This colorful mural is a product of a Sister Cities of Nashville project, which brought artists from some of Nashville’s many sister cities to collaborate with each other and with Nashville artists back in late October and early November last year. One of those artists was Max Grimm from Magdeburg, Germany. (Here’s a profile in English.) He partnered with Andee Rudloff to create this colorful mural behind Smith & Lentz Brewing on Main Street. Rudloff, of course, has done many murals in Nashville, including one more-or-less across the street (and the first of her murals featured on this blog). The fence belongs to Urban Ecovillage – East Nashville, which describes itself as a “pop up community.” Rudloff and Grimm also partnered with another artist, Gabi Bianchi from Mendoza, Argentina to create another mural on Natchez Trace that I hope to feature on the blog soon.
Located at 900 Ramsey Street. The mural faces an alley that lies between Ramsey and Main Street, at the corner of North 9th Sreet. There is some street parking along 9th.
