6/16/2017 ~ Whole Foods, 115 Mack, Detroit. Artist: Tylonn J. Sawyer. Three more commissioned works of similar subject matter by other artists grace this exact same Midtown wall…..

____________________________________________

6/16/2017 ~ 1820 Mack, Detroit. Artist unknown to us, but you could probably figure it out pretty easily from one of the ‘Murals in the Market‘ folks. This piece went up long before their 2017 event but it appears not at all out of place among the fest’s other productions…..

7/21/2017 ~ Approximately 9299 Lawton, Detroit. Artist: Unknown…..

7/26/2017 ~ Queens Bar, 35 East Grand River, Detroit. Artist unknown to us. This billboard is often repainted and if we were into betting, we’d bet the good people at Library Street Collective curate it. We could easily be wrong, but we advise ya to start with them if you’re hoping to get to the bottom of it…..

7/26/2017 ~ Somewhere near Griswold & Michigan, Detroit. Artist: J. Dwyer…..

The following five works were commissioned advertisements for the recently released, Katherine Bigelow-directed film, “Detroit”. They appear, in our opinion, to be fabricated enlargements of smaller pieces, with the exception of the last work, which appears to have been painted directly onto the wall. We photographed them all between July 26th and August 8th.

____________________________________________

8/4/2017 ~ 3445 Cass, Detroit. Artist: Christpher Konecki. Find another decent mural by ‘Caratoes‘ on this building’s perpendicular wall to the right in this photo. Make no assumptions regarding its current condition. We have no idea. Haven’t seen it in person, only in online shots…..

8/8/2017 ~ Adelaide @ Orleans, Detroit. Another piece that appears to be part of the ‘Murals in the Market’ project (it’s even included in their website’s listing of 2017 creations) but was painted many weeks prior to the actual event. Artist: James Bullough…..
