Memphis Mural Locations: All Of The I Love Memphis Murals

Posted by Holly Whitfield | October 17th 2014 32097 2327

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 #1: Original Love


I live in the neighborhood and see folks snapping photos in front of this I Love Memphis mural nearly every day, no exaggeration.

Location: corner of Cooper and York (near 768 Cooper Street)
Artist: Brandon Marshall

Mural #2: Greenline Love


You’ll have to get on the Greenline to find this colorful I Love Memphis mural, painted on an old railroad tunnel.

Location: On the Greenline near the intersection of Waring Road and Minden Road

Former Mural #3: Love In Red

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.

    Of course, I like it best when it looks like this: 10599613_10152435295485805_8467109954514367073_n.jpg

    Maybe we were looking in the wrong place, but we didn't find the Vance at Allen mural.

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

    • Holly Whitfield says:

      Hi Tulio,

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

  8. […] Fun fact about Memphis: there are some pretty dope murals painted all over town. We only had time to visit one, so we chose the one that spoke to how we felt about the entire weekend. If you have the time, you can spend a whole day exploring the beautiful wall art. Check out more here. […]

    Is this an official ilovememphis mural?

    If so – are there others???

    • Holly Whitfield says:

      It’s technically a billboard, but yeah, I generally count it as one of the official ones. There are no others yet; I’ll add this to the list.
