Murals in the Market continues to enhance the Eastern Market experience and the district’s Transformation into a must-see destination for arts, as well as food, in Detroit.
Over the past three years, 1xRUN and Eastern Market Corporation have produced more than 125 murals in the Eastern Market District. With the creation of these murals, each area has seen a significant visual impact on the surrounding neighborhood as well as increased traffic, additional economic development, and increased safety.
In addition to creating new murals, Murals in the Market also hosts many events during the festival including panel discussions, artists dinners, meet and greet opportunities, site-specific installations, block parties, nighttime events that coordinate with Eastern Market After Dark, and more! Murals in the Market is more than an international mural festival, it’s a creative platform that inspires and encourages community engagement using public art as a vessel.
The Eastern Market-based street art festival will return this fall on Sept. 13, expanding from nine days to 10 days of painting and programming – including two Saturdays for the first time. The festival also will add a block party to its roster of auxiliary events like discussion panels and cultural tours.
