Mural paintings depicting cultural life, natural landscapes and people of Da Nang painted on the walls along alley No. 75 on Nguyen Van Linh street in Hai Chau district have attracted a large number of visitors to the place.

A group of artists from Da Nang city’s Fine Arts Association and the Architecture University participated in the art project worth over VND 2.5 billion (USD 110,000), since January.

Duong Huynh Trang, who is behind the fresco painting project, says the project has been funded by generous donors and that she is calling for more funding from local people to develop services such as food stalls and souvenir shops on the alley to cater to domestic and foreign tourists.
