Take a Self-guided Wall Crawl in Kalamazoo, Michigan

Posted on May 28th, 2019

Take a mini self-guided wall crawl to admire and pose in front of some of the most Instagrammed murals throughout Kalamazoo!

 

The coolest part about the idea of a Kalamazoo Wall Crawl is that this list doesn’t even skim the surface of the many buildings in our area that are graced with some of the most amazing works of art! So, while we come up with a more official guide, we included a gallery at the end of this list containing other great murals to consider adding to your route.
