2nd Avenue AT&T Art Wall – Cassidy Cole

Working left to right on the wall of window murals at the AT&T Central Office on 2nd Avenue (not to be confused with the more famous AT&T building in Nashville, the Batman Building on Commerce Street) the third work is by Cassidy Cole.

It’s part of series of murals on the building sponsored by AT&T, the Nashville Downtown PartnershipThe DISTRICTNashville Metro Arts Commission, and The Studio 208. All are done by women, and the project was curated by Ashley Segroves of The Studio 208. They are all on vinyl, and went up in the summer of 2018. Cole is a graduate of Belmont University and until recently was based here in Nashville (she’s now in Los Angeles). Until its closure, her work was frequently exhibited at The Arts Company, now rebranded as Chauvet Arts, so you may have seen her work on the art crawls we did in the before times. There’s a nice profile of her in Interior Anthology. The print in the window is based on a painting called “Sufficient” (and no, you can’t have it, it already sold.)

You can see the other murals in this series (once I’ve posted them all, there are eight in all) using the links below. There’s a bit more information about the project in Part 1.

This is how it looks along with the the other two murals in the left set.

Located at 185 2nd Avenue North. This is downtown – lots of parking, almost none of it free.

2nd Avenue AT&T Art Wall – Erin Elise Laughlin

Working left to right on the wall of window murals at the AT&T Central Office on 2nd Avenue (not to be confused with the more famous AT&T building in Nashville, the Batman Building on Commerce Street) the second work is by Erin Elise Laughlin.

It’s part of series of murals on the building sponsored by AT&T, the Nashville Downtown PartnershipThe DISTRICTNashville Metro Arts Commission, and The Studio 208. All are done by women, and the project was curated by Ashley Segroves of The Studio 208. They are all on vinyl, and went up in the summer of 2018. This one seems to have faded a little bit, if you compare it to what it looked like when it first went in. Or it might just be my photo. Here’s a recent video of her work using a pouring technique, but she also uses other methods.

Germantown and Salemtown, which lie between Jefferson and I-65 to the north and south, Rosa Parks and the river east and west, have undergone an extraordinary transformation in the last few years. One of the oldest neighborhoods in Nashville is filled with new, new, new. Even in a boom town like Nashville, what’s happened here is hard to fathom. A low-income neighborhood has been turned into a raft of condo complexes, brand new homes everywhere, and a handful of beautiful renovations. In an area with so much that is brand new, not a lot of public art is found. But there’s some, like on this renovated house across from Monell’s. I include it here because of the playful paintings in the windows. They are Alic Daniel pieces like the one featured in Off the wall (Part 2), but less frenzied. A Google street view picture from March 2016 does not show the paintings, so these are fairly new.

Located at 1228 Sixth Avenue North, next to St. Mark Baptist Church. Street parking is available but a little tough. This is a private home, so be respectful. Little’s Fish Company is a couple of doors down. Grab some fresh fish and enjoy the art!
