This one has been up for a while, and I photographed it ages ago, but I had mistakenly filed it as something I had already blogged about. Certainly, anyone who walks down Church Street anywhere near Fifth is going to have seen it. It’s a Nashville Walls Project sponsored piece, done by the Mexican artist Favio Martinez, who goes by Curiot. (Learn a little more about him here – his own page doesn’t have biographical information.) There’s no title for this work, but Curiot makes clever use of the building’s features in a way that suggests windows into strange rooms and landscapes, hence the title for this blog post. I have seen it misattributed to Rone, who did not this one but the one right next to it featured in Forget the past.
Located at 530 Church Street. There’s a parking lot right in front (common for downtown art), but like most of the nearby parking, it is not free. There is free parking for patrons of the downtown branch of Nashville Public Library which is just down the street to the east, but you need validation. So do some research and enjoy the art!
