Downtown Public Art – Part One

Recently I took a tour of Downtown Huntsville with the purpose of finding as much public art works as I could. Some of it is well-known, some more obscure. Here is part one of what I came up with.

As usual, click for the best view!

The Koi Mural, by Dustin Timbrook. On Spring Street one block west of the courthouse.
Mural on the second floor of the Clinton Avenue parking deck.
Welcome to Huntsville, by Gracie Lennox. This is one of the most photographed art works downtown, as everyone wants to stand in front of it for their selfie!

Valles Marineris, by Drop Metal. This is on Clinton Avenue in an alley between Jefferson Street and Spragins Street.

More to come later!

About Pgibson

I'm from Huntsville, Alabama where I work as a Software Engineer and part-time banjo instructor. My wife Miiko and I worship at Rivertree Downtown. I've been playing various instruments since my teen years. I started mandolin and dulcimer at about age 17 and banjo at 20. I love just about all kinds of music. In terms of banjo styles, I play and teach Scruggs, melodic, clawhammer, and 2-finger styles. I'm also very keen on theology, being a Trail Care Partner with the Land Trust of North Alabama, photography, urban planning, architecture, astronomy, ATM (amateur telescope making), birding, martial arts, and about 30 other distracting hobbies to a (mercifully) lesser extent.
