Viaduct Beautification

Tthe City of Detroit has teamed up with the Southwest Detroit Business Association to paint 3 murals on 3 viaducts in Southwest Detroit. The viaducts were chosen based on the Planning and Development Department’s ongoing study of the West Vernor Corridor and Community Outreach. It is the #1 goal of this program to insure the murals reflect and celebrate the values and identity of Southwest Detroit.

Community meetings will be held on September 3 and 6, 2017 to provide opportunities for the community to vote on the concepts they would most like to see realized in their community.

Artist concepts are due by August 19, 2017

Selected Artist will begin painting murals in September of 2017.

A group art show including the 3 artists in residence will take place October 19, 2017 in order to celebrate the program and the group’s achievements. Participating artist will be required to donate one piece of art to the city.
