Public art has long been an integral part of the Eastern Market experience.

It's this legacy that Murals in the Market aim to build upon by inviting over 40 + world-class local and international artists to paint large-scale murals throughout the district.


In partnership with Eastern Market Corporation and Knight Foundation, 1xRUN and Inner State Gallery have curated and produced a 9-day event that will activate the entire footprint of the Market with a series of events including discussion panels with culturally significant photographers & artists, a cultural tour with Detroit’s famous Slow Roll bike tour, art exhibitions, an Eastern Market block party, as well as nighttime activities coinciding the neighborhood's yearly Eastern Market After Dark on September 22nd.
