DETROIT

Last week, we were fortunate to spend some time exploring Detroit, a vigorous, spirited, and historic city, seeped in our collective memory for its automobiles and music.
With an abundance of world class street  murals, some great vintage hand painted signs, and an array of local artists creating art installations and environments, all of my image gathering buttons were pressed.
These are a small taste of this art filled city, and to reconcile my enthusiastic documentation with more than the quick dozen I usually allow, I will post part 2 next week.
