Instagram worthy mural fills wall near Churchill Downs

An Instagram-worthy mural now fills a wall near Churchill Downs.

The postcard mural at Central Avenue and Taylor Boulevard reads “Greetings from Louisville” and features iconic images of the city like the twin spires, and the massive Louisville Slugger Bat.

The mural is part of a nationwide movement called the Greetings Tour.

A former graffiti artist and his photographer fiancé teamed up to do similar postcard murals in 16 different states.

They said the goal is to brighten communities and create neighborhood landmarks

Greetings Tour photographer Lisa Beggs said, “So we actually worked with the locals and the business owner to get the content that goes inside the letters. But before painting we hung around the city just to get some, you know, like the unique aspects of what makes the city, the city.”

The mural will be finished Friday. After Louisville the Greetings Tour will head to Miami.
