Purple Cup Secret Art Walk

Is the Secret Art really a Secret? Nope!

“Secret Art” is publicly viewable art that is not located on the front of buildings, encouraging you to explore public alleys and other places where you might not typically venture or expect art to be found.

So grab a drink to go from a local restaurant or bar (served in a purple cup) and a take a stroll around the Arts & Entertainment district to discover the “secret art” that brings downtown Huntsville to life!

Gathering by Robert Bean

Gathering was Robert Bean’s first mural in downtown Huntsville. This black and white mural depicts a lively nightlife from a different era. It’s a perfect complement to the live music Humphrey’s often hosts on their back patio.

Catalyst by Robert Bean

Catalyst is one of the newest Murals to the Huntsville public art scene. It was commissioned by Google Fiber in Spring 2018 as part of their #CreatedWithGoogleFiber public art campaign. Catalyst  features nods to what makes our city unique as well as invites the viewer to become a piece of the art itself with perfectly instagram-able interactive elements!

Dragon Stained Glass by Steve Ware

Probably the oldest piece on the tour, Steve Ware created the Dragon as  “good luck charm” for the Kaffeeklatsch in 1978! Steve also took part in the creation of the Cosmic Christ mosaic at First Baptist Church (lovingly known as “Eggbeater Jesus”) and designed the Community Mosaic created by festivalgoers at the 2018 Panoply Arts Festival
