The Street Art Roll Returns


With all the interesting street art in the city I thought it was time to put together Detroit Video Daily Street Art Roll #2. Oh, and in case you missed the first art roll, here's the link.  

First Up

It may be Detroit's coolest garage. The garage behind Charlie's Bar in Springwells Village is one that catches your eye for sure.

Hacienda Mural

This is flat out one of the best murals in Detroit. Located in southwest Detroit on West Vernor near Dragoon the mural is on the side of Hacienda Mexican Foods.

Great Mural!

Around the Corner

Yup, all you need to do is look on the other side of the above building and you'll find this fantastic piece of art. This is the view from the parking lot of E and L Supermercado a great place to buy groceries when you're in southwest Detroit.

Beautiful colors

Heading East

On the side of the Matrix Theatre in Mexicantown is this whimsical (yes, DVD used the word whimsical in a blog post) girl blowing on a flower.

Vibrant color

Heading North

Traveling north into the Corktown neighborhood on Michigan Avenue, not far from where Tiger Stadium used to be, is this artwork of former Tiger manager Sparky Anderson and the best baseball announcer in the history of the game, Ernie Harwell.

And in the Corktown neighborhood there's a nice mural at the Mercury bar that's worth a look.

Nice landscaping too.

Still Going

The DVD Street Art Roll continues with a trip back down to Springwells Village and the following mural on a curve.

The Southwest Urban Arts Mural Project brings us the next mural also in Springwells Village.

Beautiful message too.

There's More?

Yes, there is. But the art will have to stay in the digital warehouse until the next Street Art Roll...
