ATL Street Art Tour

The other weekend, J had the best adventure idea! He suggested we go on a street art tour of Atlanta!
We mapped out some of the walls using the All City Street Art App and the Living Walls website.
We started in Decatur and worked our way down towards Dekalb Avenue and then hit a bunch of art on Edgewood Avenue. By this point, we were hungry for lunch so we stopped at the Sweet Auburn Curb Market - we enjoyed some Venezuelan sandwiches from Arepa Mia. My sandwich had black beans, feta, and plantains - it was so good! We also enjoyed some tostanes and sugar cane lemonade.
Then our tour took us towards Five Points and Lakewood. We got to see the incredible Hyuro piece that's causing a lot of unnecessary outrage in Atlanta - sadly the piece is being painted over so we wanted to make sure we saw it before it was gone forever. It was beautiful and it's a shame that people cannot appreciate it as art.
We ended our tour in East Atlanta before heading home. It was such a fun excursion and we saw over 30 different pieces! This is a must-do for anyone in the Atlanta area!
