NASHVILLE - A famous mural in the 12 South area of Nashville appears to have been vandalized.
According to NBC-affiliate WSMV, it looks like someone threw black paint over the "I Believe in Nashville" mural.
It has grown into being one of Nashville's most recognizable spots and a very popular place for visitors to stop by and take photos.
Artist Adrien Saporiti created the mural five years ago for DCXV Industries, according to a post on the company's blog. A celebration was planned for March 25 to mark the mural's five year anniversary.
