They also kicked things off with the presentation of a new mural by the Australian artist Meggs, who was on hand to put the finishing touches on the painting. The new mural, which shows two hands emblazoned with the word "Growth," is located at 2934 Russell St., Detroit, across the street from Joe's Liquor & Wine Shop.
