Reclining seats and restroom equipped for your comfort. - Mexico & Murals Tour- Morning meet up with guide Kim Rusinow from Destination Detroit Tours to begin our adventure. From major commissions for Detroit’s most iconic landmarks to pop-up pieces on the side of buildings, mural art has gone hand-in-hand with Detroit ever since the mid-20th century. It’s time to explore this super-sized artistic medium and its ability to spark not only meaningful conversations, but also controversy along the way. Join us as we explore and contrast a selection of the great murals of Detroit. From vintage murals created by Hispanic artists in Mexicantown to modern era murals created throughout the last decade, and learn about the creative muralists who bring street art to life. Stroll through Mexicantown to see the contributions of great Mexican muralists reminiscent of Diego Rivera style, whose influence on the Depression Era and Art Deco murals can still be found today in many public and private spaces. Hear about contemporary mural artists and the proliferation of street art as a respected medium as we travel to the North End. Explore BLKOUT Walls Festival, a seven-day, all Black-produced project that occurred in summer of 2021. More than twenty vibrant murals were produced within the perimeters of the North End. This initial festival will be the seed of an arts-based economic development, or creative economy, within the North End community. A visit to Rebel Nell a local organization that seeks out women who have struggled to find and retain employment. These women are the Creative Designers that create wearable artistic jewelry from fallen layers of graffiti.
