Shepard Fairey mural unveiled in downtown Detroit

Sal Rodriguez

World-renowned street artist Shepard Fairey has unveiled his new, 180-foot mural in downtown Detroit.

He also opened a new exhibit at the Library Street Collective gallery in the city over the weekend.

Anthony Curis is a partner with the gallery. 

He says the mural is Fairey's largest work to date.  

"It can be seen from all over the city. If you're in Comerica Park and you're staring at the skyline of the city, now it's a piece of that skyline."

Curis [KUR-is] says thousands of people saw the mural and exhibit this weekend, which they’ve extended to run through mid-August.
