Meet the Artists Behind this Year's Murals in the Market at the High Dive

Murals in the Market 2018 is officially underway and this year's artists have been hard at work making their masterpieces throughout Eastern Market. In addition to the amazing art that is being added to the city, there are always a bunch of amazing parties throughout the run of the festival, all leading up to the unveiling at Eastern Market After Dark on Thursday night. One of of the parties that we're most excited about is happening this Tuesday and it's called Drinks with the Crew. This is your chance to get up close and personal and meet the artists while having a cocktail or two. As if that isn't cool enough, the reason that we are most excited is because of where it's at. This event will be taking place at the High Dive, a new bar on Joseph Campau in Hamtramck.

We first had a chance to check out the High Dive during this year's Labor Day festival. In the past, we've always used Carbon Lounge as a place to sit and have a drink, while still being able to hear the nearby stage, and we also escape the doom of using a port-a-potty by using their restroom while we were inside. Well, we knew that Carbon was no more, so we were thrilled to find out that something else was opening in its place. When we went into the bathroom and saw some of the cutest art we've ever seen on the walls, we had to find out what was up. Well, the bathroom was just the start. Murals in the Market alum and LA based artist, Shark Toof, has taken the bar over. Over the past few weeks, he and his team of other talented street artists have been hard at work painting murals throughout the new bar and transforming this space into not only a cool bar, but a work of art. We haven't had a look inside since Labor Day, but after talking to the team behind the bar and hearing their enthusiasm, we are super excited to see what they have in store for everyone.

Murals in the Market Drinks with the Crew is happening this Tuesday, September 18th from 9 p.m. until 2 a.m. High Dive is located at 11474 Joseph Campau, Hamtramck, MI 48212. For more information on this event, click here. To learn more about Shark Toof and to see his work, click here.
