Interesting place to visit to see the artists in action doing their craft. Unfortunately, you need quite a bit of money if you want to purchase any originals.
We were driving through Asheville, on our way to Surfside Beach, South Carolina, and happened to come across this graffiti village on the outskirts of the Asheville Arts district.

For all the attention paid to the river arts district, I still found it really confusing. Everything was more spread out than I expected.
