Often, as I'm rolling through Detroit on I-75, this ginormous mural looms alongside the freeway on the side of an old rundown industrial building. Supposedly, it is the largest mural in Michigan. I've always wanted to check it out, but between dodging traffic at speed and not knowing exactly how to reach it, a visit never materialized. Then the other day, as I was leaving the city and heading to Biker Bob's demo days, the GPS had me exit the freeway to make a U-turn, and there it was. Although, I did have to back-track a short distance 'against the grain' on the one-way service drive to reach it. This mural was painted by Detroiter Kobie Solomon. A custom rendition of the mythological Chimera; an animal made up of various animal parts. This one has a blend of elements from the logos of Detroit's four professional sports teams. There are also images that depict the city's industrial might and creative soul. Notice the lions mane is made up of pencils and paint brushes.
