The Grand River Creative Corridor, also known as “GRCC Detroit”, is an art corridor and neighborhood revitalization project concentrated on Grand River Avenue between Rosa Parks Boulevard and Warren Avenue in Detroit, Michigan. Launched on July 15, 2012 by "real estate guy" and principal of “4731 Group”, Derek Weaver (www.facebook.com/derekjweaver), the project features over 100 murals on 15 buildings; an outdoor fine-art gallery at a bus stop; free-standing art installations; a clean-up of overgrown vegetation, trash, and vandalism; and an economic stimulus project for local businesses.Arrange to visit Grand River Creative Corridor and other attractions in Detroit using our Detroit trip itinerary planner.
