Detroit Murals

Selecting the latest photos of Detroit a will show you is becoming increasingly difficult. There is so much that I want to show you, but it is also high time to travel to Chicago.
Let’s stay in Detroit a little longer.

Today I join this post from Lars.
Maybe I have a better search engine than Lars, but I've found some more information about these murals.

I show the black-and-white mural, on the photo of Lars half hidden, in full glory as the main photo.
Imagine; This mural was designed by the 93-year-old Detroit artist Charles McGee. He will not have painted it on the wall himself, I suppose. The work is 36 meters high and has the title "Unity" and can be found on the side of the new 28 Grand in Capitol Park.

The 1st workshop shows a detail of the large mural on Lars's photo. This mural is painted on the back of the Isaac Agree Downtown Synagogue and was designed by Bunnie Reiss. For this work the artist was inspired by Eastern European folk art, with symbols to bring happiness and luck.

The 2nd workshop shows the mural "Rise" - 1431 Washington Blvd, Detroit.
Artist is Beverly Fishman, Artist-in-Residence and Head of the Painting Department at Cranbrook Academy of Art.
Detroit as a centre of cultural and industrial innovations
(”The mural's rhythmic repetitions, designed to be a counterpoint with the building's horizontal bars, are inspired by the electronic pulse of the city's electronic music scene). - as well as the echo of its assembly lines.", source: website:
