The “I Believe in Nashville” mural was painted five years ago on the side of a building that houses 12South Dental Studio near Edley’s BBQ and Draper James on 12th Avenue South.

The spot became a popular place for tourists and Nashville natives to take pictures.

Adrien Saporito painted the mural in 2012 for DCXV Industries.
