Fort Worth Murals – Foundry District/West Seventh/Camp Bowie

If you’ve never visited Inspiration Alley in Fort Worth, go!  You’re in for a treat.  It’s an alley full of murals, in an area full of murals.  I’m a big fan of creativity.  Colors, shapes, and designs have always been interesting to me.  Why artists choose their themes, and how they develop their themes, is fascinating.  My interest in art and patterns has inspired me in my plastic surgery practice.  Murals are all over the place in Fort Worth now.  It just takes a minute to actually see them.  You probably drive right by a lot of murals and don’t even notice them.  I thought I’d take a minute to show you some of the amazing art in the Foundry District, West Seventh Street area, and Camp Bowie areas of Fort Worth.

Murals in the Foundry District

The Foundry District is a small area near White Settlement Road and Carroll Street, a little north of the old Montgomery Ward building.  Inspiration Alley is probably the centerpiece of it.  Go, park your car, and stroll down the alley.  Revel in the artistry that surrounds you.  It’s really just amazing.

Inspiration Alley

Here are a few of the truly inspirational murals found in Inspiration Alley.  I know of families who had their high school seniors’ portraits done with these in the background.

Other Murals in the Fort Worth Foundry District

Right across the street from Inspiration Alley, here’s a wonderful mural on the backside of a building, not facing the street.

Take a short walk or drive to the Grand Berry Theater.  This amazing mural faces the parking lot but not the street.  It’s about as large and colorful mural as you’ll find in Fort Worth.

Murals at Fort Brewery and Pizza

Drive west on White Settlement a block or two and turn onto North Foch Street.  You’ll come across this building full of murals.  Each of the murals represents one of the beers brewed on the premises.  All of the murals were done by Brad Smith and his team.

Murals in the West Seventh Street Area of Fort Worth

The West Seventh Street area is vibrant, with numerous apartment complexes, shops, restaurants, and movie theaters.  Murals are interspersed throughout this area.  If you happen to find yourself there, be on the lookout!

Murals on Camp Bowie

Okay, technically this one’s not on Camp Bowie Boulevard.  It’s near the dreaded West Seventh/University Drive/Camp Bowie

Drive west on Camp Bowie Boulevard and you’ll pass by more murals.  With your eyes focused on the road and traffic, you’ve probably passed right by these without even seeing them.

Art on public display, right there for your enjoyment if you’ll just take the time.  The creative process is a wonder, and the ability to transpose thoughts so beautifully onto walls is truly inspirational.  While it may seem a little odd, artists like these stimulate me to think differently in my plastic surgery practice.  Shapes, shadows, and contours add to a result, whether the canvas is a building or a body.

I hope you’ve found a little pleasure in this.  If you have, you might be interested in looking at short blogs I’ve written about murals in other areas of Fort Worth.  Here are a few:
