1XRUN ANNOUNCES FIRST ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL MURAL FESTIVAL IN EASTERN MARKET FEATURING 45 LOCAL & INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS
1xRUN & Eastern Market announced this morning the arrival of the International Mural Festival in Detroit during September 2015. 1xRUN has assembled an incredible line-up of over 45 Detroit-based artists as well as international artists to participate in the first annual public art celebration.
“Public art has long been an integral part of the Eastern Market district and experience. The Murals In The Market festival will expand on 40+ years of large scale public murals by inviting world class local and international artists to join with local artists to add exciting new works throughout the market. With a diverse group of artists from around the world Murals In The Market will enhance the market experience and help continue the transformation of the market district into a must-see destination.” –1XRun
Within only the short timeline of the past four years, 1xRUN has curated over 30 MURALS in Eastern Market alone, totaling over 100 MURALS throughout the entire City of Detroit. The Detroit Beautification Project was created in 2011 to visually impact the landscape of the city and increase public safety and economic development.
September marks the return of the annual Detroit Design Festival, which celebrates ‘Detroit’s role as a global center of design and creativity.’ Eastern Market After Dark is the most anticipated neighborhood-wide event, drawing thousands to the district in the evening hours with various community-focused programing. Stay tuned as we keep you posted for more activities centered around Murals In The Market and Eastern Market After Dark leading up to September 22-26th, 2015!
