SLOW ROLL: Murals in the Market Edition
After nearly 5,000 riders enjoyed the 2015 murals by bike, we welcomed back Slow Roll for this years festival.
Verso Installation + Opening Night
Temple Children duo David ‘Meggs’ Hooke and Miya Tsukazaki presented Verso, a new installation that debuted at 1xRun’s Murals in the Market.
Inspired by Detroit’s Eastern Market and its history of actively planting, sourcing, and coming together to share, Verso celebrates the turning of the leaves, a shift in consciousness. The experiential installation reflects Temple Children’s ideology that in an upside down, consumer-driven society, we must turn back to simpler times and make conscious choices to directly affect our communities and natural resources in a positive light.
LINCOLN STREET ART PARK
Murals in the Market held several events at the Lincoln Street Art Park including the Detroit Family Reunion and WASTEDLAND : DETROIT--an exhibition of art and music. WASTEDLAND : DETROIT also featured a screening after dark of "Wastedland 2" by Andrew H. Shirley.
