Knob Hill Urban Arts District is a grassroots initiative to improve the Knob Hill business district of Colorado Springs by creating the city’s first neighborhood centerpiece for street art. In 2017, Knob Hill business owner and street artist Paes164 organized other local businesses along Platte Avenue between Union Blvd. and Circle Dr. to begin creating the Urban Arts District together. Over a dozen large outdoor walls were pledged for murals to date, with several large scale works finished or in process. More inspiring projects are planned.
