Oz Arts Inside/Out, Part 2

Portraits mural street art Nashville

The Merchant’s Corner version of Oz Arts Inside/Out Project. See Part 1 for details. Your intrepid blogger interacts with the art below (and no, I don’t know that guy).

Located on the east wall (facing Fourth Avenue S.) of Merchants, itself at 401 Broadway. This is the heart of Lower Broad, and parking is always a problem. Good luck!

UPDATE: This mural no longer exists.

Oz Arts Inside/Out, Part 1

Portraits mural sticker street art Nashville

As part of French artist JR’s worldwide Inside/Out project, OZ Arts Nashville took a giant camera around Nashville back in June to take giant portraits of hundreds of Nashvillians. The photos were turned into posters, and the posters were put up at three sites – on the OZ Arts campus itself, at Casa Azafrán on Nolensville Rd., and down at Merchant’s Corner off Lower Broad. This is by definition temporary art, and indeed, I can’t vouch for the current condition of any of these. I took the Casa Azafrán picture shown above in late June just after it went up, the Merchant’s Corner picture a few days after that, and the OZ Arts picture last week. A gallery of the individual portraits can be seen here on the Oz Arts website.

The Casa Azafrán mural is found on the north wall of Casa Azafrán at  2195 Nolensville Pike. Parking is fairly easy, and the mural is probably easier to access if you park out back. Links to the other two sites below.

The Zoop Gallery on 8th South

Sticker art Zoop street art Nashville
Under the I-65/I-40 interchange on 8th Avenue South, there are four posters (as of 7/16/2016) put up on bridge pillars on opposite sides of the road, all signed by “Zoop.” There is, in fact, an Instagram account for @zoopstreetart that features these images and others. File these posters under “temporary art,” but if the artist keeps at it, I’ll probably feature some more “Zoop galleries” in the future. There are two versions of the top image on the east side of the road, while the two below are found on the west side.

UPDATE: These pieces are gone, but keep an eye out, as “Zoop” continues to put up similar pieces around town.

Located on 8th Avenue South, south of Division St., on pillars of the second most northern bridge of the I-65/I-40 interchange. Park off Division St. or at one of the businesses just south of the bridges (probably easier).

Woodland creatures, Part 1

Raccoon sticker art street art Nashville
I took this picture of these two charming raccoons a few weeks ago and I’m glad I did. Turns out it’s a sticker (about three feet wide), and it’s already beginning to deteriorate. I should have realized it was a sticker to begin with, because stylistically it closely resembles others that have appeared in the Woodland/ South Gallatin area. I have pictures of some of those that I’ll be posting under “lost art” and “damaged art” in the future.

Found on the street-side face of 927 Woodland Street at the eastern end. Not in good as shape as it appears above.

Part 2

UPDATE: I think I’ve identified the artist: Emily Miller. Check out her work! And I do in fact have a couple more “creatures of Woodland” to post. The piece above, sadly, is in bad shape now.

UPDATE 2: It was indeed an Emily Miller piece. It no longer exists, however.

A suicide king provides an anatomy lesson

kingofhearts

I took this picture in mid-June of a poster on an electrical box. I didn’t even notice that the hearts were anatomically correct (more or less) – my walking companion had to point this out. Outdoor art is almost by definition temporary, and a poster slapped on a metal box is definitely so. This one shows up on current Google Street View (as of 7/2/2016) so it may be a bit sturdier than it looks. Just east of Koi Sushi and Thai at 923 Main Street, right on the sidewalk.
