Best Street Art 

The unlikely collaboration between MSK and a vandal

OmniCorpDetroit, 1501 Division St., Detroit

In recent years, Eastern Market has become a destination as a place to view quality street art, hosting a variety of murals by local, national, and international artists. While the out-of-town crews have arguably brought a new energy and appreciation for Detroit in the street art world, they've also come under criticism of local graffiti writers who denounce their tendencies for goofy imagery that doesn't necessarily speak to the community. Late last year, OmniCorpDetroit's mural was vandalized with a large gray scribble by the latter camp. Coincidentally, MSK member RIME happened to be in town shortly after it occurred, and simply redrew the original mural's linework over the graffiti — an unlikely collaboration.
