Wheat Paste Graffiti in Detroit

While it seems like most of the country has given up on Detroit, a few undergrad design students at Eastern Michigan University have not. In collaboration with Lincoln Street Art Park, students of graphic design instructor Dan Sinclair wheat pasted their posters in a sanctioned area of Detroit. Dan says:
Recently we looked into socio-economical issues pertaining to the Detroit Metro area. In light of the recent bankruptcy circumstance in Detroit we had a jumping of point to look even further into other issues as well. By exploring Detroit's decayed landscape and current conditions we were able to find a sanctioned area to graffiti our posters…not something you can do in most cities! Despite all the socio-economical issues pertaining to the Detroit Metro area, we have embraced the large metro sprawl and its unique offerings, especially in regards to art and design community oriented projects.
