50 Muralists from all over the country are working day and night on new pieces to add to Eastern Market’s growing collection of artwork.

Participate in the festivities by visiting any or all of the featured events before the celebrations end on September 28th.

From 12PM - 8PM you can see the artists in action and watch them bring their creations to life. Pick up a handy dandy road map from any local business (I got mine from Supino’s) and walk from one mural to the next.

Visit the 1XRun Warehouse from 9/23-9/30 anytime between 11 AM - 6 PM to see a print exhibition of the muralists’ work and pick up a piece of your own.

See Eddie Colla’s solo exhibition and installation, “Enumeration”, at the 1xRun Warehouse tomorrow, 9/23 from 7-10 PM. After, head to the Official Murals in the Market After Party at Stroh’s Warehouse from 10 PM - 3 AM. I’ve never been to Stroh’s Warehouse but I’m very excited to check it out- I’m a sucker for warehouse parties.

On Monday, bring your bike to Shed 3 at 7 PM  for a special Murals in the Market Edition of Slow Roll.

Educate yourself about responsible consumption Tuesday, 9/26 at 3 PM. Meet at Shed 2 for “Think Global, Eat Local: Pioneers in Detroit Food and Farming”.

Shag Threads & Haute to Death are hosting the first ever Murals in the Market Wearables Show at the 1xRUN Warehouse on Tuesday 9/26 from 8-11 PM. I’m super excited for this one. I love Haute to Death and the collaboration with fashion… so New York City. My head is spinning with outfit possibilities.

Murals in the Market wraps up with Eastern Market After Dark on Thursday, September 28th. I’m exceptionally passionate about Eastern Market After Dark. It’s been one of my favorite events in the city year after year. The sheds are filled with all things fun and exciting, everyone is out and about and there’s after parties galore.

As always, Detroit is a busy place to be. Murals in the Market only comes around once a year, take advantage of the unique event and show some extra love for the city over the next week!
