"Music Legends on The Drag" Murals, Austin

"Music Legends on The Drag" murals are a visual tribute to the world of rock stars and movies, located in the vibrant heart of Austin's cultural landscape. These murals are just a block away from the renowned Austintatious Mural, positioned at the strategic corner of 24th and Guadalupe.

One of the murals is a movie-themed artwork that adorns the old Intellectual Property / Tower Records building. This mural stands out for its sheer size and cinematic theme, making it a focal point in the area. The other mural, equally captivating but with a different aesthetic, is found on the side of the Wells Fargo Bank, previously the GAP building. This particular mural is known for its dreamlike and warped artistic style, offering a contrast to the movie-themed piece.

At street level of the old Tower Records building, visitors and locals alike are treated to a series of stencil-based artworks. These pieces, created by Federico Archuleta, a prolific Austin artist, celebrate famous rock stars. Archuleta's work is renowned for its detailed and iconic stencil style, which adds a unique flavor to the Austin street art scene.

Together, these murals not only beautify the urban landscape but also serve as a testament to Austin's deep-rooted love for music and arts. They reflect the city's vibrant cultural heritage and continue to attract admirers from all over, adding to the rich tapestry of Austin's artistic offerings.
