Fun Things to do on a Walk - Finding Street Art

One of the neat things about walking is that you get an up close look at what's happening around you. While visiting Chattanooga's North Shore we scooted through an alley and I was delighted to see that the walls were covered with what some would call graffiti but I consider street art.

This one in particular caught my eye...

Street art by J.W. Butts (mute0n) found in Chattanooga, TN

There were three electrical boxes that were all covered but the one in the center looked more composed, not just a random splashing of color.  I like the lady with the big hair, she kind of spoke to me as I walked by. 

When I got home and did a little research I found that this painting was done by southern artist, J. W. Butts. He signed his creation mute0n. 





It always amazes me how much there is to see in the big, beautiful world of ours.



So park your car, get off the bus 
and use your feet to see what you can find!

  7. I like this a lot! They don't look like mindless tagging at all. I find that while walking I see so much more than even on a bike.
