“Murals In The Market” 2016: 31 Flavors

“Murals In The Market” 2016: 31 Flavors

murals-in-the-market-2016-27-2Find our 31 favorite works from the 2016 “Murals In The Market” event in and around Detroit’s Eastern Market District. Returning 2015 contributors include Sydney G. James, Hebru Brantley, ‘Patch Whisky’ and ‘Ghostbeard’. Works by Beau Stanton and ‘Miss Van’, shown in entries #4 and #30 respectively, were completed in 2015 but somehow excluded from our coverage of last year’s event; thus our grand total of 33 entries on the list below. We’d love to report a bunch more minutiae regarding the event, but y’know what? The event’s website already says it all, so why bother? Our thanks to the good people who put it together: 1xRun, Innerstate Gallery, Eastern Market Corporation and Knight Foundation. ~I♥DM
