Take a walk through one of the West Side’s diverse neighborhoods today and you’ll find that as of recently, they’ve undergone some of the biggest transformations in the city. From Grant Street’s newly established collective of awesome local shops to the charming cafes and coffee shops that populate the Five Points neighborhood, there’s certainly much to be discovered- and more on the way.

Luckily, the mural scene is no different. As you explore, use our guide below to scope out some of the best public art the West Side has to offer- and be sure to support the emerging businesses in the area if you like what you see.
