This year’s festival is a smaller version compared to past events from 2015-2019. After a two-year pandemic-related hiatus, Murals in the Market returns with two sets of murals –– one set is dedicated to Eastern Market’s farmers on the south and east elevations of Shed 5 –– while another set is dedicated to Eastern Market’s makers, which will be installed on the west and north elevations of the Metro Accelerator building at 1420 Adelaide. A few other murals will also be installed, including one dedicated to soil fertility that faces Orleans Street on a wall just south of Wilkins Street, and a re-paint of the mural on the east elevation of the building at the northwest corner of Russell and Adelaide.
Participating Artists: Phil Simpson, Sabrina Nelson, Freddy Diaz, Ashley McFadden, Anthony Lee, Ed Irmen, Jesse Kassel, Sheefy McFly. Featured Makers: Lush Yummies Pie, Sunday’s Best Detroit, Gus & Grey, Milk & Froth, FEAST Detroit, LLC.
Featured Farms: Brother Nature, Rutino Vargas, Jentzen Farms, Bucu Farms, Lake Divide Farm.
Audiences can catch the work in progress during Eastern Market After Dark, happening Thursday, September 15, 2022 from 6:00pm – 11:00pm in the Eastern Market sheds. Additionally, the recently unveiled Detroit Unity Bell will be available for viewing in Shed 2. This year’s Murals in the Market is sponsored by The Michigan Farm Bureau and Sun Communities.
