Hosted by the minds at 1xRun, September saw the Eastern Market district of Detroit cop a colourful facelift with Murals in the Market. The project organised by 1xRun, Inner Stare Gallery and Eastern Market Corporation saw a plethora of artists from Detroit and around the world come together to bring some life to the city. Detroit has been through a lot in it's time, but with this comes incredible potential, which is what these artists are taking advantage of.
Created for the purpose of showing what Detroit has to offer, the event brought artists together to encapsulate the spirit and history of the city whilst bringing some vibrance and colour to businesses in the area. The monstrous line up for Murals in the Market included names like Askew, Beau Stanton, Denial, Glenn Barr, Hannah Stouffer, Hebru Brantley, Jeff Soto, Kashink, Kwest, Madsteez, Martha Cooper, Meggs, Miss Van, Persue, Rone, Shark Toof, Woes and many, many more. Check out the gallery below which is really just a glimpse into what went down and what was left on the walls of the Eastern Market district.
