Detroit Graffiti at Wigle Recreation Center

Wigle Rec Center Graffiti #1To find these works of Detroit graffiti start at Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard and head north about a quarter mile up the Lodge Freeway Service Drive. We think it’s safe to assume that the Wigle Recreation Center is defunct and unused; and much like the abandoned Brewster-Wheeler Rec Center along the southbound US-75 Service Drive in Brush Park, it has therefore become a fresh new canvas for local graffiti artists. While the earlier set of murals covering this structure are less than stellar in terms of technique, they definitely add flavor and charm to the subsequent marks left by the likes of “Paid”, “Agent” and “Marm”. ~I♥DM
