Take a walk alongside the Birmingham Holiday Window Art Trail!

Downtown Birmingham has partnered with seven local artists to begin the first Birmingham Holiday Magic Window Art Trail! The artist had full access to the unoccupied window spaces to create a holiday-related art scene. Artists were encouraged to use multimedia art types in their windows, and began to go up the last week of November. You can check out all the artist and their work now until the end of the year!

More than just looks, the role 20th street plants play during winter

The plants chosen for the Birmingham Green refresh were strategically placed to offer low-maintenance options and add a sense of place. Plants play a much larger role than just looking attractive.
