Daring colors, bold statements, beautiful street art, captivating local paintings, night lights and art galore...

Just a few of the phrases we would use to describe Art Alley in Downtown Lynchburg. Whether you are looking for a great spot to take photos or a place to take a stroll on a cool evening, Art Alley will be an enjoyable addition.

Art Alley is a destination space that was established by The Downtown Lynchburg Association. With a grant and sponsorship from the Greater Lynchburg Community Foundation, Art Alley was able to open to the public on October 1, 2021. It is located at the intersection of Commerce and 11th Street and features outdoor galleries, street art, murals and much more.

Art has always been an integral part of our community. It has pushed us to think. It has brought our community together during challenging times. And most importantly, it has been an outlet for many in our community to express themselves. This alley features local talent within the Greater Lynchburg area.

This project is just another way that our community has beautifully blended history with something new.
