Krista Stearns is a long-time resident and entrepreneur in Asheville and is grateful to live in a city with so much art and amazing outdoor adventures.
In 2016, Stearns and her family traveled throughout South America. One of the highlights was a visit to Colombia’s capital where they experienced the Bogota Graffiti Tour. The tour celebrates the capital city’s history and culture via a visually spectacular medium in the context of a nation ravaged by colonialism, civil war and drug cartel violence
Over the course of two decades in Asheville, Stearns has observed the sleepy mountain town transform into a booming tourist destination. She created Mountain Mural Tours to promote healthy tourism that honors and celebrates local artists who communicate the values and legacy of Asheville through accessible urban street art. She and her husband have teamed up to create an experience that is a great introduction to Asheville art culture and the history of this fascinating city. We are excited to share an authentic and meaningful cultural experience, so bring your friends and family and come paint the town!
