In September 2015, Mural in the Market will turn Detroit’s historic Eastern Market District into the epicenter of the city’s burgeoning public art movement. The inaugural festival invites dozens of world-class local and international artists to paint murals that embody the spirit of Detroit and deepen the market’s cultural legacy by transforming it into a must-see public art destination.

Part of the line-up this year is Miss Van. Originating from Toulouse, France and having spent most of her artistic life in Barcelona, Miss Van has travelled the world painting her instantly recognizable women on the streets, as well as on canvas. She has exhibited extensively for decades worldwide in Europe, USA and Asia.

Take a look at her progress so far painting her mural.
