In this week’s Friday 5, we’re sharing our favorite murals around town.
Tower Grove & Manchester
I love the “Evolution of the Bike” mural that was created for the Tour de Grove.
Broadway & Olive
One Metropolian Square, the tallest building in the St. Louis skyline, is home to a spectacular mural that extends throughout the inner courtyard lobby. The awe-inspiring, 22-foot high, vivid depictions show various St. Louis landmarks and the business class, nine-to-fivers that call St. Louis home. The mural feels alive, and gives that building both life and character.
Market & 18th
My favorites are the Edward Millman series of nine in the Main Post Office.
14th Street & Spruce
The first time I saw this was when I was moving to St. Louis. It was so realistic to me that I thought the mural was real life.
Manchester & Kentucky
I like this one on the side of Rise Coffee in The Grove.
