More New Detroit Graffiti in the Grand River Creative Corridor
More new Detroit graffiti is being added to the Grand River Creative Corridor (GRCC) every day, it seems. Stretching from Interstate 94 on the northwest to the Lodge Freeway on the southeast, the GRCC is home to many of the very best multiple graffiti installations in the city as well as a butt-ton of other work that ranges from above average to pedestrian to outright vandalism. Consider this post a companion to our recently published “New Detroit Graffiti in the Grand River Creative Corridor” as most of the tags found herein are in the exact same parts of town. Duh.
Start your tour of the 34 works in our album below at Warren Avenue and 16th Street where you’ll find the works depicted in photos #1.0 through #5.0, as well as a handful of others we recently showcased in our posts entitled “Detroit Graffiti at Warren Avenue & 16th Street” and “New Detroit Graffiti @ Warren Avenue & 16th Street“. They’re on the walls of the building on the northwest side of the intersection. Head southeast from here, to 5170 Grand River, to find the work shown in photo #6.0. From there you’ll head even farther southeast to the buildings just north of where Grand River Avenue meets Rosa Parks Boulevard, and just to the east of where Rosa Parks meets West Willis Street. Here you’ll find a treasure trove of tags we previously covered in our post entitled “Detroit Beautification Project @ Grand River & Rosa Parks Blvd“. As you move further northwest along the northeast side of Grand River you’ll find the pieces shown in photos #7.0 through #16.0 upon the walls of American Integrated Supply at 4250 Grand River, formerly known as Perry Screw and Bolt Corporation, which was established in 1943 and claims to be the “oldest screw and bolt place in Detroit”. When you reach the end of the building’s Grand River facade go east down Calumet Street and begin a circumnavigation of the entire structure to find the works depicted in photos #17.0 through #25.0. Click here, here and here to learn more about a few of the artists involved in the creation of these multiple epic masterworks of public urban art. After you’ve seen ’em all, walk across the street and head a little further northwest, to the corner of Buchanon to find the work shown in pic #26.0. It’s on the northeast side of the first building on the south side of Buchanon Street. Finally, head just a bit more to the northwest on Grand River, to the corner of Wabash Street, to find the graffiti seen in photos #26.0 through #34.0 upon the aged, corrugated metal walls of L & L Used Parts and Company at 4465 Grand River, who claim to be the “oldest junkyard in the city”.
