B'nai Moshe

On Sunday, May 1, B'nai Moshe members and friends joined Linda Yellin of "Feet on the Street" for a fantastic tour of street art, graffiti and murals at Eastern Market.  The group began at at Signal Return  - a printer's co-op in the Eastern Market and got a tour from our own Lynne Avadenka, who is the Artist Director.  Here you can find Find letterpress posters, handmade postcards and more.   

 

Eastern Market is a small neighborhood just north of Downtown Detroit and Ford Field that hosts a farmer’s market every Saturday (the longest-running year-round farmer’s market in the country). In 1969, an artist commissioned the neighborhood’s first murals, and the Detroit street art scene here blossomed since. In just the last six years, more than 100 new murals have been added, thanks to the organization Murals in the Market.

One of the reasons Eastern Market is a must-do activity in Detroit is the concentration of amazing murals here. You can’t walk a block without coming upon a remarkable piece of public art—or several!

What’s more, the number of Eastern Market murals grows every year. The annual Murals in the Market festival, which happens every September, combines murals with a block party-like series of events to celebrate this uniquely Detroit neighborhood. 

In fact, Smithsonian Magazine named Murals in the Market one of the best street art festivals around the globe (and was the only one in the US).
