Art Alley

The Gaines Street Art Alley is a huge accomplishment for the City of Tallahassee and The Plant. We have been able to transform an abandoned alleyway into a sanctuary bursting with creativity through local artists and the natural beauty of a community garden. Check it out on your next stroll down Gaines Street.
