Eastern Market Comes Alive After Dark this Thursday - 2019 Murals in the Market

Murals in the Market has been in full swing ever since last Saturday, but things are just getting started. Thirty One artists have been working extra hard all week long to get their pieces done before Thursday'nights Eastern Market After Dark mural unveiling party. This annual celebration in the streets has become an end of Summer staple that has helped put Detroit and its artists back on the national radar. Each creator is given a space and the materials to make a piece of the market come alive. Then, we get the chance to walk through the streets to see all the new art while music, food, booze, and life happens all around us.

This year's artists lineup includes local and national names like Ijania Cortez, Kevin Lyons, Ron English, Tiff Massey, Jason Abraham Smith, and Efe Bes. You can check out all of the artists and read their bios here. You can see a map of where all of their pieces are located here. There will also be tons of food trucks and places to eat during EMAD, this includes great local spots like Cairo Coffee, Mitten Crate, Supino Pizzeria and Gather. You can see a full list of all of the places you can eat here. There will also be a lot of local retailers that will be staying open late for the event. This includes DetroitWick, SMPLFDWell Done Goods and more. You can see the full list of local shops here. Finally, all of the local galleries will also be open during the event, so make sure that you pop in to see what they have. You can see the full list of their locations here.
There will be a few follow up events in the market after the party this Thursday. You can keep up with those here. You can also head down to the Market anytime you want to take a walk and see the art. We suggest making a nice little Saturday out of it and visiting the oldest market in the US while you are at it!
