TreeTown’s mural is part of a pair of murals that link Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti. These two murals will bring together two communities and two perspectives through collaboration, conversation, and creativity. Yen Azzaro from Ypsilanti, and TreeTown Murals – Mary Thiefels & Danijel Matanic, from Ann Arbor. Yen’s mural will be in Ann Arbor, on the Liberty Street Argus Farm Stop, and TreeTown will be completing theirs at Growing Hope on Michigan Avenue in Ypsilanti. The artists have worked together to identify the subject matter of their respective murals to amplify the other’s community through visual art. The driving force behind this concept is our friends at Toyota, and we couldn’t be more grateful for their support in making this possible.
