Detroit is becoming a mecca for murals. Our guest today is aiming to catalog it all.

Viranel Clerard is the man behind the Detroit Mural Project, which you can find on the Internet machine at detroitmurals.com. The site organizes murals by neighborhood and includes a description of the artist and who it was commissioned by, when known, a link to the artist’s Instagram page, and location of the mural.

He saves his commentary about the murals mostly for his Instagram account, at Detroit Murals.

Clerard talks about how the project got started, how he’s drawn the attention of Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan, how the city’s art scene is still mostly white and the role of art in building community.

He also is a big fan of the new KAWS statue in downtown Detroit and talks about what it means to him.
