Sure you know that Bishop Arts District is great for food, shopping, and everything else in between, but did you also know about all the great walls? Not "China Great Wall" great, but great like murals, textures, and colors. My team at the DG Cause Marketing Agency needed team pictures and decided that Bishop Arts was the perfect place to go. Even if you aren't in the market for taking team photos anytime soon, these are always great ideas for kicking your next Instagram photoshoot to the next level.
Obviously before we even got started we ate breakfast at Oddfellows, but then we took the the Bishop Arts streets for pictures!
While Bishop Street Market has been a staple of Bishop Arts for twenty years, this mural is just over two years old. Commissioned by Jim Lake Cos. and created by Eyecon Studio. It’s a mural that’s part Wizard of Oz and part OakCliff.
When this adorable furniture shop is closed, their doors provide a colorful backdrop perfect for fun pictures. The wall is full of purple and aqua circle-like shapes, and if you’re feeling like sharing your spotlight, there’s also a rather tall woman in the mural.
Besides talking about how great their pizza and beer is, Eno’s brick wall in the alley is one of the most photographed spots in Bishop Arts. Just a heads up, every Christmas they have an awesome "Merry Christmas" light that goes on the wall--also great for photos. The wall is picture-perfect red brick from top to bottom; so no matter how small or large your group, everyone will fit!
So we get this isn’t the wall of a building, but it’s still technically a wall, even if some call it a fence; plus, it really does make a great background for pictures. The only catch to using this fence is you have to be there before the crowd; otherwise the cars will block the good side.
415 W. Davis Street
There is a large mural that covers the entire side of this building. We decided to take a picture only in front of the ice cream cone, but if you want dark, cartoon-like super hero's in your photo, the other half of this mural is just what you’re looking for.
Beckley and 9th Street Mural (an honorable mention)
We didn’t actually make it to this mural for pictures (because we live in Texas and it was 100 degrees before 10am), but next time you’re in the area, this wall is a must see. The mural is hidden away in an alley, and if you blink you’d miss it. But how often do you have the opportunity to take a picture with the head of Willie Nelson and Stevie Ray Vaughn?
We had a great time in Bishop Arts District taking photos. If you want to see more tips from our trip to Bishop Arts for team photos check out our DiemerGroup blog. Where are some of your favorite murals and walls for photos?
