A Decade of Man in the City, Art Walk

31.30

As a UNESCO world heritage design city, Detroit is uniquely qualified as an artistic hotbed. Murals, sculptures, museums, markets, and street art are seemingly everywhere, adding to what’s uniquely wonderful about our beloved metropolis. And there, rising above it all, for a decade has been the orange silhouettes of a fedora-wearing man. They can be seen on buildings throughout Detroit, Hamtramck, and Highland Park, along with more than 160 locations across the state of Michigan. Giant versions have floated the Chicago River, and the North American Auto Show has recruited them to showcase the “color of the year”. But do you know why? Or where? Or who they are? As the creations of internationally recognized artist, John Sauvé they are called the Man In The City Project. To celebrate ten years of Man In The City we invite you to join Detroit History Tours on an art walk of the Cultural District. Together with artist and historian guides, you'll explore 8 Man In The City installations; even going to the top of a legendary Detroit building in the process. You’ll see the famed College for Creative Studies sculptor garden, the galleries of the cultural district, and the Museum of Modern Art on this two and a half hour, 2 miles, rain or shine walk.

Guests should be prepared to walk, stand for short periods, and climb stairs. This tour happily welcomes guests 10 years old and older. For ultimate enjoyment wear comfortable shoes, dress for the weather, and bring a camera for photo opportunities.

Please meet your guides outside the Woodward ave entrance to Great Lakes Coffee - 3965 Woodward Ave, Detroit, MI 48201 by 11:55 om.
