One of my favorite aspects of the River Arts District is the outdoor art. Whether you call it graffiti, murals, or street art, just walking through the warehouses of the River Arts District is fun. Here are a few of my favorites.
This wall on the back side of Summit Coffee has been turned into a beautiful work of art.
This work by Asheville artist Dustin Spagnola has a different kind of beauty. Spagnola has works of art displayed around the world, including in NYC, Japan and Nepal.
This portrait of the late singer Charles Bradley is another of my favorites.
Even storage sheds have been turned into works of art.
Asheville’s River Arts District is a treasure trove for art lovers. It’s not just the building exteriors. Over 200 local artists have studio space in the warehouses and buildings of the River Arts District. It’s a great place to wander through the studios and, if you’re so inclined, to take home a work of art.
