We’re Excited for the 2018 Murals in the Market!

What’s up, Detroit?! 

Our beloved 2018 Murals in the Market (MITM) is here! The Smithsonian Magazine recently dubbed Detroit’s Murals in the Market as one of the best mural festivals in the world! According to the official MITM website, 1xRUN and Eastern Market Corporation have produced more than 125 murals in the Eastern Market District.

Detroiters already know MITM is something special, and many art enthusiasts from around the country (and the world) travel to Detroit to participate in this exhilarating murals festival.

Now in its fourth year, the exciting murals festival kicked-off just a few hours ago at Eastern Market and will last until Saturday, September 22nd. Fourteen events will be featured during the 9-day festival. From artist talks to cultural events and concerts, there will be a little something for everyone.

There will even be a few children-friendly events such as the Green Living Science Children’s Workshop on Saturday, September 15th at Eastern Market’s Shed 3 and the CityWide Poets from Inside Out Literary Arts on Saturday, September 22nd.

Get the full event schedule here.
