Last week Detroit contemporary arts group Library Street Collective announced that Detroit’s First National Building will soon have the world’s tallest mural on its side.
New York-based artists How & Nosm, identical twin brothers, will paint the 26-story piece, which is commissioned by the skyscraper’s owner Detroit businessman Dan Gilbert.
The mural will be 354-feet tall, and 81-feet wide, according to Library Street Collective and pay tribute to a mural that formerly graced the building.

The Grand River Creative Corridor project has done a great job turning store-front eyesores into works of art.
Part political protest and part outdoor art environment, the Heidelberg Project in Detroit’s East Side aims to transform lives through the power of creativity. Begun in 1986, the project features a block of trees, yards and abandoned houses along Heidelberg Street adorned with found object sculptures and the project’s signature polka dot motif.
The theme of the March 2015 issue of ZIPR magazine, an arts-focused Detroit-based monthly publication, is STREET SEEN.
Included are images by Jennifer Quigley (above right on the wall of The Carola, a high-end loft building in Brush Park) and several pieces at The Heidelberg Project.
