The creative spirit is alive and well in the Motor City. Detroit is an appealing place for many street artists and a place to go if you want to make something amazing.

Murals In The Market happened happened last fall and the results are breathtaking. 45 artists applied their skills to the walls of Detroit’s historic Eastern Market area, and you could feel the good energy when we spent the afternoon photographing them and talking to various artists.

Detroiters of all kinds could be see taking their most epic selfies and exploring the streets. This very well may be Detroit’s newest, hottest attraction.

Below, in no particular order, is the tip of the iceberg. This post isn’t a comprehensive list. It’s well worth your time to go down and check them all out for yourself.
