By now, it’s common knowledge that Atlanta has amassed an impressive, evolving collection of street murals and un-commissioned graffiti pieces over the past several years.
Less known: How the heck to find it all.
That’s where Atlanta street art enthusiast (and recently retired engineer) Art Rudick is stepping in.
Inspired by a walking tour of Bushwick, New York, Rudick took on the hobby of photographing Atlanta murals and creating streetartmap.org, a catalogue of street-art collections from Grant Park to Buckhead’s Disco Kroger piece—and far beyond.
He urges Atlantans to view the site not as a coffee table book for seeing works—but a field guide for getting out and experiencing them.
One cool feature is the site’s self-guided walking tours around Little Five Points, East Atlanta, and Cabbagetown/Reynoldstown, which are so specific they include hidden, off-street murals.
“The maps on my website are very detailed and will be updated regularly,” Rudick tells Curbed Atlanta.
The site even includes an in-memoriam vault of sadly covered-up classics of Atlanta street art past.
It’s a handy resource for Atlantans who value vibrant walls, or who’ve been looking for a reason to check out specific neighborhoods.
