Murals In The Market

About This Project

The Distinct Life partnered with Eastern Market Corporation, Knight Foundation, 1xRun, and Inner State Gallery to create a 9-day event in 2015 that invited significant photographers & artist to create murals throughout the Eastern Market District of Detroit. Rick Williams & Naturel created a mural titled, “Teach a Man to Fish” a Chinese proverb that incorporates the necessary education and tools needed to reduce poverty, enhance education and foster entrepreneurship. “Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish and he will eat for a lifetime.”
