Back Alley Paris

The City of Paris continued expansion of the “Back Alley Paris” project to the east and north alleys from the Courthouse Square. The “Back Alley Paris” project utilized portions of downtown Paris alleys as canvases for creating vignettes from late 1800’s/early 20th century Paris, TN, life. Local historians, art designers, artists, and school art classes have collaborated to create the murals. Partners included City of Paris, the Downtown Paris Association, and the Robert E. Lee Academy of the Arts.
