What was once an eye sore, is appealing once more. Iron St. off Jefferson is a nugget of hope in the City of Detroit. Each artist allowing brushes and paints to speak where words couldn’t do justice. Colors and images come together in defiance of tough times our city is facing, allowing brick and mortar to serve as the perfect canvas. I advise you to take a trip down Iron St. Make sure you walk past each mural and see our city through their work. You may even find yourself here for a while. If you want to meet the artists, walk across the street to Kuumba’s Cove. They will be glad to see you. Holla if you hear me!
Update 10/5/15 :
The beautiful paintings that you see here are no longer there. Neither are the poets or the artistic air that flowed down that street. They are casualties of the new Detroit that is quickly sprouting up and the wealthy are buying up and demolishing anything in prime real estate near the river. The arts in Detroit are still going strong. I will just have to tell you where.
