The US 127 and Michigan Ave. underpass by Frandor created an artistry light installation and murals that went far beyond just merely being a utility. A challenge to overcome in the shadows under the bridge, found an artistic and creative solution in the light. Shadow to Light! The goal of this mural and light installation was to remove a barrier and reset how we feel about our safety, our pride of place, and our connection to each other when we move through this space.
With the flip of a switch, a dark and gloomy entry into our great city became a luminous and glowing gateway, a welcome beacon no matter if you travel east to Michigan State University, or you travel west to the Capital City of Michigan. The “Under the Bridge” project has created an amazing artistic transformation connecting us to each other. Brian Whitfield created the four murals that took concrete canvas to extraordinary artworks.
