Street ART in a Small Town

This is where I live ...

Brooklyn is a charming small town in southern mid-Michigan. Surrounded by corn fields,  scattered silos, woods, and in an area of lakes and recreation, it exemplifies the meaning of "bucolic."

What you can't see from this snowy photo is the back of those buildings have amazing street art.

I spent an afternoon this fall with two of the artists who worked on some of this amazing art as well as, Josh Mitoska, who owns many of the buildings ... Here are some pics & video.

Not everyone is thrilled by the art ... here are some snippets from our local paper, the Brooklyn Exponent.
