I was recently in Philadelphia and one of the things that stood out the most to me was the endless array of murals on so many buildings. The colors and positive images were all mesmerizing and I couldn’t get enough of it. I have always been a lover of art and to see it being used to enhance an urban area that is so often associated with poverty and being dilapidated was a nice change. Now, Detroit is undergoing a beautification project with the help of a team of street artists that are determined to help the city through their artistic gift. This kind of art is not only stunning, but also inspiring. Who said graffiti wasn’t beautiful?
