Highest murals in Northern Scandinavia at my hometown Hämeenlinna, Finland
Artist Guido Van Helten (Australia) at work.
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.

I love this thread, on my only trip out to CA, I remember seeing some huge Whale murals along the coast, I wonder if they are still there,
Downtown Vincennes IN. As a side note, this is the home town of Red Skelton and there is a really nice museum dedicated to Red, in Vincennes. It is worth the price of admission.
Downtown Burksville KY. As you can see, it is the home of the European Riders Rally.
Le Claire IA located on the riverfront.
Marshall IL. This town has several nice murals
scattered about. The ol' National Road or US40 runs right thru the middle of town and there is lots of history to be found.
Mural for the Carthage Carriage Company in North Carolina. The automobile sales would force the doors to close in 1925.
Murals In The Market -
Against my better judgement, Sunday I'd made a run into the heart of the city - around high noon on a Lions home game. Needless to say, it was madness. Traffic congestion and fans walking everywhere, besides the construction and accidents. It was also a scorcher; unusually hot for a late September day.
The third annual "Murals In The Market" was in progress. This was the motivation that prompted me to foray into the mess that I knew was awaiting. So, the Road King and I slowly made our way through the Eastern Market District in search of some new intriguing murals. We found some. Then some more that I frustratingly could not even reach due to the precariously hectic situation. Will have to get back down there soon to snatch them up. Lions are playing away next weekend. Even stumbled across a slew of muralists in action. It'll be interesting to go back and see the finished product.
