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.
Our friends in Detroit, 1xRun/Inner State Gallery, are coordinating a fantastic mural project in Detroit’s Eastern Market district, Murals in the Market. Thinkspace artists Meggs has already completed his mural for the project and Nosego, who’s new work is currently on view in our main room, will be creating a mural later this year. Please visit 1xRun’s website for more details on Murals in the Market, this is a must participate month long event.
