1xRUN’s Murals In The Market Announces 20+ Free Art Events

1xRUN is proud to announce the event lineup for Murals In The Market as the critically acclaimed mural festival returns to Detroit’s Historic Eastern Market with over 20 free art events! In addition to over 50 local and international muralists, Detroiters will have the opportunity to attend six special events, five after parties, four art exhibitions, three unique artists talks, a children’s workshop, a Slow Roll bike ride, a Photo Walk presented by The Detroit Free Press and participate in the Detroit Design Festival’s Eastern Market After Dark.

Unique art exhibitions will be on view throughout the festival, as Eastern Market’s own 1xRUN and Inner State Gallery will host massive exhibitions featuring new limited edition prints — created right here in Detroit — as well as original artwork from all of this year’s participating artists. Hailing from Singapore and Australia, Sheryo & The Yok will unveil their immersive auto shack which was created during their month-long residency in the city this summer. Also showcasing their debut exhibition will be the Hawaii-based collective The Temple Children, as the duo unveils new works highlighting humanity’s effect on the environment at large.

Artist talks will be hosted throughout Eastern Market featuring visiting artists Janette Beckman, Kevin Lyons and Cey Adams, as well as local artists Sydney G. James and Tylonn J. Sawyer, giving fans a unique chance to gain insight into the background, process and mindset of these prolific artists. In addition, Atlanta artist Greg Mike will host his signature Drink & Doodle with a silent auction featuring works created by the 2016 participating artists at Eastern Market’s Detroit Wick.


2015 Artist Talk Series with Askew – RSVP To The 2016 Artist Talk Series Here

A pillar of Detroit’s east side, Eastern Market will be bustling throughout the 10-day festival with their Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday Markets. Showcasing not only food from Detroit’s best local farms, these specialty markets feature locally made art and jewelry, specialty products, live music, children’s workshops, prepared-food vendors and much more.

Returning to the festival for the second year, Detroit’s world famous Slow Roll bike tour will bring thousands to Eastern Market for their unique tour of Detroit neighborhoods and landmarks by bike. Those without a bike can once again join Feet On The Street’s walking tours, free of charge. These intimate tours will provide festival guests with an opportunity to see all 50 murals as they are being created, as well as a look at previous murals created throughout the district during last year’s festival.


2015 Murals In The Market Slow Roll – RSVP for 2016 Here

Keeping with Detroit’s rich musical history, Murals in the Market has teamed up with local venues & promoters to host a series of after parties and nightlife experiences for both artists and fans alike to engage with the entire festival after the sun goes down. This year Nothing Elegant will showcase 90s hip-hop and pop jams at The Old Miami, and Slow Jams will bring classic soul and funk over at the Woodbridge Pub. As all of the murals are finished, Eastern Market After Dark will light up the entire market with music, open studios, street vendors and more kicking off The Detroit Design Festival. Capping off the Murals In The Market, Detroit Hustles Harder & Paxahau return for a throwdown party at TV Lounge featuring the sound of Detroit’s underground with music by Waxtax-n Dre, Gary Chandler, John Arnold and Count Mack.
