Was here during the 2014 74th Rally. If you want some bad-ass pictures with your bike, this alley is a MUST.

In most alleys with graffiti on its walls, you would always think twice if you'll walk through it. This one is an exception. The art spread throughout the alley seem warm and welcoming to the people passing by. The place was relatively clean and had no unwanted smell. No rats and scary people around, too. Which makes it inviting to passers by. A nice place to catch local artists showing their skills. Here you can see pieces of history, cartoons, and whole lots of wonderful art.

What a unique way to a city alley! If you want to paint, you need to get a permit to paint...but so fun! Worth the stop if you are in the Rapid City area and want to stretch your legs!

Very cool place to walk through if you are wandering around downtown. Best part is new art will be up each time you visit so it will never be a boring experience.

It was a neat little detour into Rapid City's downtown. The alley itself is pretty neat with the cool artwork that people have created with spray paint. My kids loved looking at all of the different pieces!
