Deep Ellum has always been a hub for innovation, culture and music. This neighborhood attracted jazz and blues musicians of the 1920s, hosting some of the most famous names in the industry. Today, Deep Ellum is home to more than 30 live music venues offering a variety of genres.
In high school, I’d beg my parents to allow me to visit the Under 21 clubs. Fifteen years later, I still love exploring the vibrant music and arts scene.
42 GALLERIES has been a cultural epicenter for musical and visual arts in Deep Ellum for years. They launched the 42 Murals project to showcase local, national and international artists’ work around the Deep Ellum neighborhood. Their talent is evident as you walk the streets, electric with energy and vivid with color.
If you’re in Dallas, I hope this map of Deep Ellum street art will help you find your favorite mural. If you’re not in Dallas, I hope this photographic journey will give you a glimpse into this amazing part of Dallas and the innovative and creative people who call it home.
