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!

Any good art has been trashed by wanna be vandals. Address is not what is posted. Located between 6th and 7th,between main and st joseph.

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.

While walking downtown Rapid City and admiring the Presidents' statues, I accidentally walked up this interesting alley. Granted, this type of art is not for everyone, but it is unique.

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