Recap: Murals in the Market Returns to Detroit
For over six years now, Detroit-based 1xRUN has been curating Murals in the Market, an annual street mural festival in the Eastern Market neighborhood of the Motor City. One unique quality of the festival, and why we champion the event here at Juxtapoz, is that it's a rare mural festival that truly combines local artists with a roster of international talent that comes to Detroit. 1xRUN have curated over 100 murals around Eastern Market, and this year brought together locals and artists such as Remi Rough, Ron English, Todd Francis and more.
Today we have a recap of the finished murals, and although we were sad to miss the J ROCC and DJ Premier sets as the closing party to Murals in the Market, the murals here show the vibrancy of the festival. Even the Smithsonian dubbed Murals in the Market as one of "The Top 5 Mural Festivals In The World!" The word is out.
