There’s a relatively new mural on Douglas that’s been getting a lot of attention on social media, even if it’s not really in a place tourists usually go. Maybe that’s because the guy who paid for it, Drew Holcomb of Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors, has promised a weekly drawing until Christmas for a prize package for everyone who checks in in front of the mural. That last link also includes a time-lapse video of the artist, Kim Radford, creating the mural. The mural features lyrics from the Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors song “Dragons,” which also features The Lone Below. The mural, as I said, is getting around. Besides showing up on Instagram, there’s also a video of “Dragons” featuring an animated version of the mural. The East Nashvillian recently published an article about Holcomb which featured a photo of him in front of the mural. I had a chance to talk to the artist, Radford, who told me that while she hasn’t done a lot of her own murals in the past, she’s planning to do more, and recently completed an eagle mural on the side of Elite Bonding on Main Street. Be looking for it on the blog sometime soon. And go check-in on Instagram in front of this one before Christmas for a chance at a prize! The check-in is “Dragons Mural.”
Located at 1224 Lischey Avenue, at the corner with Douglas Avenue. The mural is on the north side of the building, facing Douglas. Nearby street parking is available.
