Detroit-Based Muralist Pat Perry’s New A2 Mural

. November 30, 2018.

Detroit-based muralist Pat Perry created a large-scale mural on the north side of the Grizzly Peak building (near 117 S. Ashley St.). The work, commissioned by the Ann Arbor Art Center on behalf of Grizzly Peak Brewing Co., is part of the Art Center’s new Art in Public initiative. Perry, who has created high-profile public art around the world, avoided the often politically-charged themes of his past work to capture a peaceful moment where a man, overlooking a meadow, simply contemplates the beauty of nature.

The mural is located on the north side of the Grizzly Peak building, near 117 S. Ashley St.

New album captures the permanence of memories When I talk to Judy Banker about her new album, Buffalo Motel, I can’t avoid my first question being about one particular song, “Haggerty.” I can’t wait for you to hear it in a live setting at The Ark on January 9. Even with headphones, a potent poignancy
