Do Murals Add Beauty?

Fort Smith

Anyone else love murals? On my recent visit to Fort Smith, Arkansas, the murals enchanted me. First, the artwork is amazing and second, I find it hard to imagine what's involved in working with a building as a canvas.

Before we left town, we found out that artists would be in town for another week of painting. The downtown murals (@unexpected fs, #unexpectedfs) draw plenty of response from locals and visitors alike. While most find them delightful and entertaining, a few find them distracting or even horrifying.

I admit they certainly change the look of a building and therefore a town. Personally, I love to take photos of murals wherever I find them. I'm always in awe of the talent behind what I'm seeing.

A new mural in Fort Smith is creating quite a stir. What do you think of it?
