MURALS IN THE MARKET FESTIVAL LAUNCHES IN EASTERN MARKET TO CATALYZE PUBLIC ART MOVEMENT

Eastern Market-based fine art publisher 1xRUN has teamed up with the Eastern Market Corporation to assemble more than 40 local and international artists to Detroit to paint large scale murals throughout the district for the first annual Murals In The Market Festival, happening September 17th-25th, 2015. PLAYGROUND DETROIT has partnered with the festival as a media partner and will host the Welcome Dinner for included participants, as well as unveiling new mural work from participating artist, Ellen Rutt.

1XRun states,

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.

Over the past 4 years 1xRUN and the company’s fine art gallery Inner State, have curated and produced over 30 murals in Eastern Market alone, with more than 100 murals throughout the City of Detroit, including the 2011 city-wide Detroit Beautification Project. With the creation of these murals, each area has seen a significant visual impact on the surrounding neighborhood as well as increased traffic, additional economic development and increased safety.

Eastern Market Corporation (EMC) is the nonprofit that manages Eastern Market on behalf of the City of Detroit. Their “vision is to create the most inclusive, resilient, and robust regional food hub in the United States to ensure that Eastern Market nourishes a stronger and healthier Detroit — from food to art and commerce to culture.”
