On a field trip to find Tiny Doors ATL, we happened upon another uber cool public art canvas, the Krog Street Tunnel. Here are six quick reasons why we love it.
It’s Walkable. We parked our car at the Krog Street Market and walked to the tunnel. There were lots of folks riding bikes, and there were plenty of bird scooters around too.
Become a Grafitti Artist. Not only is repainting the tunnel allowed, it’s encouraged.We happened upon two girls, spray cans in hand. I asked if they were artists, they said no, but they thought they’d check out the tunnel and leave their mark. They said if you come back in a few weeks, you’ll find something totally different on the walls. How cool to have an ever changing canvas.
Tiny Doors ATL. One small little art project is permanent (or as permanent as you can get) and that is the Tiny Door at the entrance to the tunnel. Here’s more info about where to find more of these too.
Krog Street Market. This is just down from Krog Street Market where you can get any number of delicious meals or treats. Jenni’s ice cream, Little Tart Bakery and then you can find real food too, but I tend to gravitate to the sweets.
Atlanta Beltline. The Beltline is just around the corner. If you are biking, walking, scooting or whatever on the Beltline, this is a fun, and colorful stop.
More Artwork. Outside the tunnel are huge murals from more established artists than our friends we met with the spray paint cans. Walk up and down the street to view these public exhibits. My son and I couldn’t help but wonder if these works of art were secret entrances to a Harry Potteresque world. Sort of Atlanta’s Platform 9 3/4.
