As new shops and restaurants have sprouted in the Near Southside area of Fort Worth, so too have murals. This area is about 1.5 miles northeast of my plastic surgery office on 8th Avenue. The Near Southside is just south of I-30, and west of I-35. There’s a lot of development taking place. Check it out, and enjoy the murals while you’re there!

There are a lot of other amazing murals just a short drive away. Magnolia Avenue is full of murals; take a look at my previous blog about this area.
The old Ranch Style Beans factory near I-30 is now the home of the Trinity River Distillery. In 2017 the distillery held a mural design contest.

I’ve always been fascinated by color and geometry. These are factors that have influenced my thinking as I have advanced through my plastic surgery career. These murals reflect some of the great work being done around Fort Worth by so many amazing artists. I have written previous blogs about murals in other parts of town. Take a look at these posts about murals in the Magnolia Avenue area, the Stockyards/Northside area , and the University Drive/Trinity Park area. Stay tuned for future posts about murals around Fort Worth!
