The free public arts festival also is host of several events curated by participating artists including multiple art exhibitions, installations, live music, children’s workshops, community events, artists talks and more all throughout the Eastern Market District.
We know 1XRUN because over the past five years their company’s fine art gallery Inner State, have been an important pillar in the new contemporary and urban art movement, not only creating art prints and supporting the artists, street art festivals, exhibitions but now curating and producing over 75 murals in Eastern Market, with more than 100 murals throughout the City of Detroit.
With the creation of these murals and the festival, each area has seen a significant visual impact on the surrounding neighborhood as well as increased traffic, additional economic development and increased safety.
Big shout-out for the amazing friends and good people at 1xRUN and Murals in the Market… We can’t wait to see the finished murals!
