A must see when in Rapid City. The art from local artists is beyond creative and amazing. Only downfall is that it's only one block long.

I'd been here before, but this was the first time I saw Art Alley. What a great place! Even the dumpsters had art on them. I highly recommend checking this out if you're in the area. Wonderful!

It really is an alley with what some would call graffiti. But take a stroll through it. Make sure you look up and don’t forget your camera. If you’re lucky you might even see some of the artists or residents which we did.

Rapid City has set aside a part of town for spray paint artists. The Alley is decorated in spray artand draws many visitors.

If you are visiting Rapid City SD...it's a must. It only takes a few minutes and it is definitely part of the local color!

Up until this year you could but now a permit is required which sucks, in my opinion.
