25+ Insta-Worthy Murals in Raleigh

Monday, Mar 12 2018

Some of NC's most beautiful and awe-inspiring works of art have permanent residence in Oak City—but you won't find them in an art gallery or a museum. Just walk the streets and look around you to find large-scale inspiring art, just begging to be 'grammed. From the profound to the picturesque, Raleigh’s murals are “as colorful as [its] citizen already are”. Props to Raleigh Murals Project for the spot-on quote—we couldn’t agree more. 

So get out those walking shoes and hit the streets for a stunning, self-guided tour of the city’s more photo-worthy murals.
