Detroit Wall Mural

When most people think of Detroit these days, the image that comes to mind is one of economic decline and urban decay. This rooftop mural, commissioned for the home a Detroit native, is instead a vibrant, optimistic vision of the city—one that celebrates its rich architectural history and upholds the city's motto: “We Hope For Better Things; It Shall Rise From the Ashes.” Thanks to Joe DeLuca and Sam Porter for their help with painting and logistics.
