Legends

There is plenty of public art that takes some work to find. This is not an example of that. Located prominently at the western end of Lower Broad, this mural of some of the best-known country and Nashville musicians, put in last December, is hard to miss. Given that it’s essentially an advertisement for the Legends Corner bar, that’s kind of the point. It’s no doubt a major backdrop for selfies and portraits. The artist is Tim Davis, a painter, muralist and wall finisher whose business is based in Mt. Juliet. Based on the gallery of murals on his website, most of his work is actually indoors, with this being an obvious exception. Unlike most outdoor murals, this one is a set of panels attached to the wall. And take a look at it on Google Street view – Google’s algorithms have hilariously blurred many of the faces.

Located at 428 Broadway. The mural actually faces 5th Avenue North, on the west side of the building. This is downtown, in the heart of the tourist zone. Plenty of parking if you walk a ways, none of it free. You’re better off taking a taxi or rideshare. Make it part of your next bachelorette party, and enjoy the art!

Go, go gorilla!

WorldGymGorrila

Hey, it’s a gorilla! With weights! Not much to say about this except that it’s further evidence that Nashville business owners are more and more understanding the importance of public art on their facilities. The placement on the corner is unusual. This is on the new World Gym in the Gulch, and the gorilla appears to be a symbol of the national chain. UPDATE: I have been informed by the artist himself that this is a Bryan Deese piece. I didn’t recognize it without the trademarks dots in the background you see in a lot of his work!

ANOTHER UPDATE: This gym has been replaced with another gym, QNTM Fit Life, and the gorilla has been painted over.

Located at 114 George L. David Boulevard. The mural actually faces Grundy Street, about a block west from Chauhan Ale and Masala House. Street parking and parking at the gym available. Break a sweat and enjoy the art.
