22 images of hand-painted Detroit murals and signs


Yesterday, we blogged about our conversation with Camilo José Vergara, who had a bone to pick with the weekend's upbeat story about two white, college-educated sign painters -- because, aside from the occasional Tyree or Dabls, the African-American artists and themes on the city's walls weren't mentioned. In the interest of shining a light on that body of work, he's sent along a number of images, many of which will appear in his book, Detroit Is No Dry Bones, coming out this fall.
