Mural of the Month Sept 2017

This month we wanted to highlight the work of local artist Pat Perry.  Eastern Market is hosting a Murals in the market Program over the last few years.  He was interviewed by Ryan Hooper for the Detroit Free Press.

“This mural is an extension of what my identity is in this neighborhood and what it means to move into a place with a lot of history.  As things move up Gratiot and if areas start to be developed, I wanted to put something on the wall that was a symbol of folks that watched out for this neighborhood through thick and thin.”
