The artist who created the popular President Obama "Hope" poster will soon leave a mark on Detroit.

Shepard Fairey will spend the next two weeks painting a portion of the Compuware Building at One Campus Martius in downtown Detroit, according to a release from Dan Gilbert's Bedrock Real Estate Service.

Fairey plans to paint a portion of the back of the building along Gratiot Avenue, 184-feet tall and 60-feet wide.

The mural will be Fairey's tallest to-date.

Fairey will also paint a mural in "The Belt", the alleyway between the two wings of Gilbert's The Z parking garage just down the block.
