The Belt is Detroit's newest urban art installment

Paige Pfleger

In a city like Detroit, urban art and outdoor art installments have become a way to beautify neglected spaces. The alleyway between the Z Garage, called The Belt is one of the most recent spots in Detroit to get a facelift — it has been turned into an outdoor gallery where international, national, and local urban artists have contributed murals and graffiti pieces.

For the latest Michigan Radio Picture Project, we introduce you to The Belt, and one of the artist's behind the project. The Picture Project is a forum for photographers who capture Michigan's people, places, events, and issues.

You can view the images and listen to an interview with artist POSE here

The Belt is open to the public on Saturday, November 15, and there will be an opening celebration from 5-7 pm featuring food trucks, live music, and the reveal of the new urban art. 

If you or someone you know has an idea for the Michigan Radio Picture Project, go here to share your idea.
