For the second consecutive year, renowned artists from metro Detroit and around the globe converged on the Eastern Market for the past week to paint murals on the sides of buildings as part of Murals in the Market.

The transformation is remarkable.

Inner State Gallery, Eastern Market Corp. and 1xRUN have teamed up for another impressive year.

Here are murals painted during the event in 2015 and 2016.
