Event Detail

Murals in the Market Walking Tours 2017

Experience an up close & behind the scenes look at the 3rd Annual Murals in the Market Festival in the Eastern Market District. We will be enjoying the new public art and vibrancy created in the Market by Inner State Gallery, 1xRUN and the Eastern Market Corporation, along with a group of sponsors. There is nothing like seeing these incredible large-scale works of art for yourself, and hearing the artists' stories, told by expert guides.

Building on the momentum of the the last two annual festivals, incredible street art (more than 50 new murals!) will be coming to life on more buildings all over the Eastern Market District. Be among the first to see the brand-new completed murals, you will not want to miss being a part of this exciting Detroit production! 

$15 per person, tickets MUST be purchased in advance  

Meet inside of Rocky's, 2489 Russell St, Detroit 48207 (across from Shed 2), 15 minutes prior to tour time to sign in.

Each participant will receive a map of the murals to continue exploring on their own in the future - we will be covering some, but certainly not all, of the 50+ new murals! 

Our focus will be on the murals, but we want our guests to see them in a greater context, so you will also learn a bit about the rich history of Detroit's Eastern Market District, as well as current development, the local food movement, community, and the vibrant arts & music scene. 

On this tour, stroll to experience numerous brand-new murals, the realization of the annual Festival's vision. Your docents will share the knowledge they've gained from the artists as they were painting their murals throughout the Festival. We will explain how this project came to be and what it means to the Eastern Market District and to Detroit.

* Tours Run Rain or Shine, dress for the weather * Don't forget your cameras!
