LITTLE ROCK, Ark.
(Reuters) – Little Rock, Arkansas, is home to some of the best murals in the United States, according to a new study released on Thursday.
The survey, by the Urban Land Institute and the Center for Creative Technology, ranked the nation’s 10 largest metro areas based on the number of murals each community has painted.
“The best mural art is in Little Rock,” said John Mather, a senior associate at the Urban Lands Institute.
“It’s very well-designed and executed, and it’s in a community that has a very strong artistic heritage.”
The institute’s report, called “Mural Cities: The Hidden Gems of America,” found that there are more than 10,000 murals painted in the U.S. every day.
The city is home a wide range of art styles, including street art, traditional American street art and urban-themed murals.
The city has also been home to a diverse range of artists, including graffiti artists and street artists.
Some of the top cities include Atlanta, Dallas, Chicago, Philadelphia, Seattle, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.
The Urban Lands study ranked the 10 largest U.K. cities based on street art as well as the number and size of murallas in the city.
It found that Birmingham, Alabama, ranked fourth, followed by Birmingham, England, and Birmingham, United Kingdom.
In the United Kingdom, London was named the best city to live in, followed closely by Edinburgh, Scotland, and Bristol, England.
The study found that the number, size and type of mural were largely dependent on the location of the artist and whether the mural was commissioned by a business or organization.
It also found that artists were most likely to paint murals on commercial property, while they tended to paint on private property, where it was more difficult to legally display a mural.
“It’s a very unique situation where the murals are in areas that have high density of people and are used by the public,” said Michael P. Sullivan, the director of the Urban Arts Center at the Center.
Sullivan and Mather are co-authors of the report, and the Urban Art Center has been working with the Urban Research Institute on a survey for years.
The U.N. Human Rights Council has been calling on governments to improve the quality of their street art for more than 30 years, and governments have responded by creating the Art Environment Protection Commission (AEPC), a body of government officials that reviews the quality and legality of street art in the developed world.
In 2011, the commission released a report that said street art is often a tool used to suppress, marginalize or intimidate marginalized communities.
