Local art lovers know there's plenty to love about Grand Avenue, including its many galleries and murals. Most are concentrated along a section of the diagonal street that runs roughly between a pair of intersections — one at Van Buren and Seventh Avenue, and another at Roosevelt Street and 15th Avenue. But if you venture a bit off the beaten path, you'll find even more murals to explore. Here's a sampling of the many murals painted along Grand Avenue and in the surrounding neighborhoods.
