Rise-Beverly-Fishman

RISE - Beverly Fishman

RISE, Beverly Fishman's large-scale mural, completed in downtown Detroit. The colorful, abstract mural brings a vivid transformation to the north-facing wall of the brutalist-style architecture of the Detroit City Club Apartments at 1431 Washington Blvd.⠀⠀

“The mural’s design is inspired by my interest in Detroit as a center of cultural and industrial innovation. Machined forms collide with colors that evoke both natural and electronic lighting. The mural’s rhythmic repetitions, designed to achieve a counterpoint with the building’s horizontal balconies, are inspired by the techno pulse of the city’s electronic music scene--as well as the echo of its assembly lines.” - Beverly Fishman
