Asheville Street Art: Chicken Alley and Carolina Lane

One of my favorite things about visiting Asheville was the amount of beautiful street art. Downtown, I fell in love with Chicken Alley and Carolina Lane. They are small pathways with little houses tucked away. The walls are covered with beautiful murals. I could see myself living in a place like this one day. Steve took some amazing photos:

Ok, I know this isn't real "art" but it's my kind of tagging!

    1. Me too! I love the sugar skulls around the alley. Those were my favorite. One day, when I become an eccentric millionaire, I would love to have street artists paint my fences with murals! I will have the brightest house on the block!

    1. I would absolutely love to see you paint a mural on a wall. I bet it would be AMAZING. If you ever come stateside- I'll commission a wall in my house!
