About
Finding the Street Art     Atlanta has a wealth of street art, spray art, murals and graffiti.  The trick is finding it; and THAT is the purpose of this website.  Think of the Atlanta Street Art Map as your on-line tour guide to Atlanta’s amazing public art.  This is not a “coffee table book”.  This is a field guide.  The Atlanta Street Art Map will take you out into the neighborhoods to experience the murals in person.
Navigating     If you allow the Atlanta Street Art Map website to access your device’s location, you will see a “you are here” marker on your map (as long as you are within the bounds of the map as currently displayed).  One way to navigate to the next mural is by clicking on the “get directions” link in either the pop-up InfoWindow or in the marker table below the map.  The “get directions” link will take you directly into Google Maps with the selected mural as the “to” location and your current location as the “from” location.  After you have reached your selected mural, hitting “back” on your device will return you to the website.
Take a Street Art Walking Tour     This website offers eight self guided street art walking tours:
    • Atlanta BeltLine (Eastside Trail)
    • Cabbagetown / Reynoldstown (along Wylie St. and Tennelle St.)
    • Downtown (Castleberry Hill and Southern Downtown)
    • East Atlanta (around the intersection of Glenwood Ave. and Flat Shoals Ave.)
    • Edgewood Ave. (Old Fourth Ward, Sweet Auburn and Downtown)
    • Little 5 points (around the intersection of Euclid Ave. and Moreland Ave.)
    • Pittsburgh Neighborhood (The Met complex off of Metropolitan Parkway and surrounding neighborhood)
    • West End (Mall West End, Ralph David Abernathy Blvd, and the Westside BeltLine)
Your tours begins by clicking the marker listing immediately below the map.  There is typically free on-street parking a short walk from the first mural.  Then just click on the marker listings below the map in top-to-bottom order for your self-guided walking tour.
Keep your eyes open     By its very nature, street art is temporary and constantly changing.  Spray art disappears and appears on a daily basis.  This website can’t (and doesn’t attempt to) cover 100% of the murals and graffiti.  So be ready for surprises.  Keep on the lookout for new street art that is not yet on the map.  Because there is so much art along the wall in Cabbagetown / Reynoldstown only a sample is mapped.  You will find several great murals between each of the mapped ones.  If a mapped mural no longer exists, please go to the contact page and let me know.
Be Safe     Please use common sense when walking through unfamiliar neighborhoods.  Just because a location is on the map is NOT a guaranty that the surroundings are free from crime.  If a location doesn’t feel comfortable or safe to you, then please don’t go there.  Stay safe and have fun.
The Focus is on Murals     For purely practical reasons, this website focuses on murals. An occasional graffiti piece might sneak in, but only pieces that have a mural-like quality.  I could devote an entire website to tags, paste-ups and 3D installations etc, but there are only so many hours in the day so I have to keep my focus narrow.

Who am I and Why am I Doing This?     I am a recently retired engineer.  Creating and maintaining this website is one of my hobbies and all of the pictures on this website were taken by me. It all started in 2016 when my wife and I went to New York City to visit our niece who was doing an internship in Manhattan. Two significant things happened on that trip: 1. My niece got me started on Instagram and 2. My wife and I took a walking tour of street art in the Bushwick neighborhood. I have always liked art but this walking tour started my interest in street art.  Street art was a perfect source of Instagram content and I enjoyed the treasure hunt aspect of finding cool new images.  When we got home, I searched the internet to find new murals around Atlanta for my Instagram posts.  I quickly realized that I couldn’t find everything I wanted on the existing websites, and that sparked the idea for this website.  I’m having fun creating it and hopefully you will enjoy using it.
