Street Docent

For some artists, the city streets are a canvas. Buildings with blank brick walls beg for the bright colors of a brand new mural. Graffiti artists have been painting Deep Ellum for decades, bringing to life storefronts and back alleys. Jerod DTOX Davies is one such painter, or muralist, as he likes to be called. And he wants to take you on a walking tour of his gallery. He guides you through the streets of Deep Ellum, pointing out the important murals and dishing on the other “crews.” Plus, at the end of the tour, he teaches you how to make a personal tag. The tour starts at 1 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $40 through sidetour.com.
