Murals in the Market is a yearly festival in Detroit that peppers the city center with international street art. This year, 1010, Marka27, Felipe Pantone, Dabls, Paula Schubatis, Dessislava Terzieva, Sydney James, Ben Saginaw, Kevin Lyons, and more added splashes of color to the city's Eastern Market. Throughout 10 days in September, they opened up a trippy tunnel, introduced Native American icons, erected a textile chain-link fence intervention, and wrote "Detroit" many ways all over the urban cityscape.

There were tons of standouts, but some of our favorites included Pat Perry's heavily symbolic auto industry-themed marching band, Dabls' smash-up of mosaics and cave paintings, and a stunning collaboration by Mr. Jago and Xenz that looks like misty mountain lanscape attacked by Fauvists and inhabited by Surrealist monsters.
