Adam Garrison’s Umbrella Mural in Galveston

  • Location: On the eastern side of 22nd Street in Downtown Galveston, between Postoffice and Postoffice Rear streets
  • Best Time to Photograph: The mural is shaded by the street most times of day. Given that it’s under an awning, it’s pretty photogenic throughout the day. It seems ideally suited for striking a poison on a rainy day.
  • Parking: Metered street and paid lot parking is available in the surrounding area.
