Whether altered or destroyed by another artist or tagger, “buffed out” by overzealous municipal authorities, or simply decayed by the elements, street art is fundamentally ephemeral, says Brian A. Brown.
A professor in the Department of Communication, Media, and Film, Dr. Brown will draw on his firsthand field research undertaken in Detroit in his free public lecture entitled “Street Art in the Post-Fordist Motor City” at 7 p.m. Thursday, November 8.
The event, hosted by the In/Terminus Research Group, will interest anyone interested in public art, public space, or Detroit. It is set for the Amphitheatre in the School of Creative Arts Armouries, 37 University Avenue East.
