Downtown Hollywood Mural Project – Be Inspired

REINVENTION THROUGH ART.

One thing I have to say is that the artists of the Downtown Hollywood Mural Project are no shrinking wallflowers and that the good people of Florida do seem to enjoy their public art.

The mural art project has redrawn the downtown Hollywood urban landscape and was started in 2012 with the aim of using contemporary outdoor murals at key locations in Downtown Hollywood to stimulate and enrich the community. The art creates interest. The interest brings feet and the feet visit businesses in the area. It’s all so logical and uplifting.  The Hollywood Mural Project is a curated project that brings together some rather incredibly talented mural artists. Some of the art works are intriguing, others are mesmerising and some are just plain nuts. And apparently there has been dissent about some of the art – basically everything you could ask for from great public art.

If you would like to know more about the art, there are free tour which are held at regular intervals. The murals really come to life at night and there are some excellent restaurants in the area with ample parking. It’s a great place to stroll around.
