Memphis Mural Locations: All Of The I Love Memphis Murals

Posted by Holly Whitfield | October 17th 2014 14933 1354

Dearest readers, followers, and fellow Memphians, here are the six I Love Memphis murals and their locations. Your weekend mission is to find an I Love Memphis mural you haven’t yet been to, take a picture of you/you and your pals/your dog and post on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the tag #ilovememphis.

The I Love Memphis murals project is a collaboration between this blog, the Memphis CVB (my employer), and the Urban Art Commission.

Here’s a map of all the I Love Memphis murals.

Mural #2: Greenline Love

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.

    Who can one contact to do a Mural? What are the normal cost? Will they do it for free if paint is supplied?

      Hi Tulio,

      Every artist has different rates and policies. You’ll need to contact them individually.
