Lexington is primarily known for bourbon and horses, but in recent years the art scene has flourished. With new murals and art galleries popping up around town, Lexington has become one of the best spots in the South to find a vibrant work of art; as Joelle Riding, a full-time travel blogger, discovered on her recent visit to consider which murals are the most ‘instagrammable’.

Kentucky Life Street Art, 131Church Street, Lexington

“Whenever I travel to a new city, the first thing I go out to find is street art. There is something about street art that completely captivates me. The level of talent, the ideas and symbols in each piece. It simply blows my mind that an artist was able to transfer an idea in their head into a large-scale mural. Lexington has upped its mural game in the past few years with the help of PRHBTN, which brings artists from all over the world to create mural works in different spots throughout the city. If you’re visiting Lexington, get ready to see some incredible pieces. Although there are countless to choose from, here are my top 10 picks of street art you should check out.”
