A2: Mural

A report on WJBK Fox 2 News highlights a large public art mural on the back of the Grizzly Peak Brewing Company building in Ann Arbor, created by Detroit graffiti artist Antonio “Shades” Agee. Grizzly Peak owners Greg Lobdell and Jon Carlson had recognized the wall to be dilapidated and commissioned Shades to paint his mural. Shades said graffiti is art rather than vandalism: “It’s just another form of medium, like as in charcoal or pastels or anything. It’s just another medium for artists to use, it just so happens that it came from the streets.” [Source]
