Mural at NW 24th and Lee in Fort Worth, Texas

Fort Worth Murals – North Main and the Stockyards Area

My appreciation of art is one of the things that led me to become a plastic surgeon.  There’s art all around us, but we often just don’t take the time to see it.  Fort Worth now has a dynamic mural scene.  Sometimes we catch a glimpse of a mural but it doesn’t really register.  I wrote about murals in the W. Magnolia Avenue area of Fort Worth in October 2021.  Not to be outdone, artists have shown their talents on the North Side of Cowtown near the stockyards as well.  Here are some that are definitely worth the drive.

Murals on North Main Street in Fort Worth

This 4 story mural is just amazing!  It’s on the left (west) side of North Main as you drive from downtown to the stockyards.  It’s on the south side of the Springhill Suites Hotel.

Here are some murals that you’ve probably passed a million times but just didn’t notice:

The Selena Mural on North Main Street

This is an absolute gem, and it’s hidden.  On the east side of N. Main, if you’re driving from the north, you’ll see a tiny sign indicating where the mural is.  The mural is on the back side of a building facing a parking lot.  You should really see this mural.  It’s stunning.  From a plastic surgery perspective, based on this mural, there’s just not much I would have had to offer Selena.

Hotel Drover and Mule Alley Fort Worth

This area has all types of art on display.  Murals, statues, and different types of art are all around.  Go see and enjoy!  Here are a couple of my favorite murals from Hotel Drover:

More Mural Masterpieces in the North Side of Fort Worth

This mural is just a couple blocks up the hill on Exchange Avenue but still in the stockyards area:

Hookers Grill mural
(by Calina Mashay Johnson; at 213 W. Exchange Ave)

I usually take these photos on weekends when I’m taking a break from my plastic surgery practice.  Some of these murals are on walls facing busy parking lots.  It’s hard to get an unobstructed photograph unless you go early in the morning.  That’s especially true of the colorful mural shown below.  It’s on Azle Avenue, a short drive away from the stockyards.  This is a spectacular piece of art and well worth a trip.

Here’s another beautiful, colorful mural on a small store near the Convivio mural shown above:

In the coming months, I’ll show murals from other areas of town as well.  Stay tuned!  On the other hand, if you want to turn something about yourself into a walking piece of art, give my plastic surgery office a call!
