DECATUR, Ala. — North Alabamians now have a chance to see more 125 works of art thanks to a new mural trail from the Alabama Mountain Lakes Tourist Association (AMLA).

The North Alabama Mural Trail spans 16 of the state’s northernmost counties with plenty of street art paintings that both entertain and educate about the history of the community its in.

“The North Alabama Mural Trail is not only for art enthusiasts, but for those who appreciate the transformation of a blank wall,” said AMLA President and CEO Tami Reist. “Across the United States, there is a nationwide trend of celebrating public art and whether you have an interest in art or not, we invite you to come see what our walls are saying in North Alabama.”

The self-guided tour comes via a mobile passport that shows the artist, street address, and GPS coordinates for exhibits, all on an interactive map. The virtual passport can be accessed at NorthALMuralTrail.org.

Participants are also invited to share the murals they visit on social media with the hashtag #NorthALMurals to be entered to win a prize from Visit North Alabama.
