Sprayetteville Street Art Festival

E

Eight new murals created by 11 professional local and regional artists will be completed in Fayetteville this week as part of a new street art event debuting this year.

The event, called Sprayetteville, began on July 6 and will finish up on July 12 at various locations in downtown Fayetteville.

Artists that will paint murals during the festival include Octavio Logo, Jason Jones, Jessica Jones, Tommy Tropical, Matt Miller, TigerSasha, Marcus Ford, Samuel Hale, EATS, and X3mex.

The event was curated by locals Loudy Bousman and Ranaga Farbiarz, founders of Shaman Art and owners of American Shaman Kava Bar just off Dickson Street.

Farbiarz said the event was originally scheduled for the spring, but was postponed indefinitely because of COVID-19. After a lot of thought, they decided it might be a perfect time for this type of event.

“We realized this type of event might be perfect for these times,” he said. “The murals are all outdoors, and can be enjoyed while social distancing.”

The murals are located on various walls around Fayetteville (see the full list below), and are all expected to be finished this week.

Those who’d like to check them out in person can participate in a “walking and biking wall crawl” utilizing the RideWithGMS app, which will give turn-by-turn directions to all the murals, and allow locals to ‘check-in’ at each of the murals via QR codes located at each location for a chance to win prizes.

Here are links to the bike tour map and the walking tour map that goes along with the event.
