From: Eastern Market
9/15/2016 - 9/24/2016
2934 Russell Street
Detroit, MI 48207
About 50 local, national and international muralists will be painting live throughout the market, creating dozens of new large-scale works of public art and adding an additional jolt of energy and color to one of the city's most vibrant centers of street art and urban life. Detroit artists Ellen Rutt and Jesse Kassel created a new mural (Nourish) which is the first of the 2016 festival and a promise of what's to come.
The free event will include ancillary events from live music to block parties, children's workshops, artist-curated events, talks, tours and more including an installation (not a mural) created by Tyree Guyton, the Detroit artist famous for his long-running Heidelberg Project, an outdoor art installation on Detroit's east side.
