Video: The Detroit Beautification Project. Chapter 1Graffiti // Wednesday, 27 Jun 2012
The Seventh Letter has just released a lengthy first portion of a video series documenting the Detroit Beautification Project. The video focuses on the intent of the project told by Revok and Pose, with some words from Askew, a city council meeting discussing Sever’s mural, and local residents weigh in on their thoughts about the art. As you can see from the video, Detroit is becoming a destination for artists from around the world with “the common goal to bring vibrancy to one of America’s greatest cities.” Best part of the video may be Revok telling the cop that his badge doesn’t make him tougher or smarter, nice. Saw the handcuffs coming for that one.
