Artist Dan Witz has put up pieces from his Is It SafeSanctuary series around the city as a part of the exhibition, and the infamous Stickman left his mark in numerous places around Detroit too.
However, the excitement continues inside the walls of Inner State Gallery as installations and murals are underway. Ghostbeard and Patchwhisky collaborate on a mural for LAX / DTW: DETROIT HUSTLE II, while Meggs constructs a massive installation with the help of Miya Tsukazaki.

In September, Thinkspace Gallery curator and co-owner Andrew Hosner went out to Murals in the Market in Detroit, Michigan. Not only exploring the colorful artistic walls that are sprinkled across the city, Hosner crept into the abandoned buildings and factories that Detroit is trying to recover from. Visit the Murals in the Market website for info on all murals and Hosner’s abandoned city tour after the video.
