Stellantis is partnering with renowned fresco artist Dr. Hubert Massey to create one of the largest art installations in Detroit’s history.
Dr. Massey’s next work of art will be a 15’ high x 1,500’ long mural on the sound barrier outside of the Detroit Assembly Complex – Mack plant. Work is scheduled to begin in July after a design concept has been developed with input from the community. The project is part of the $35 million Community Benefits Agreement between Stellantis, the city and the Neighborhood Advisory Council that supports neighborhood, housing, education, training and environmental initiatives.
“I want to make sure this mural shows the breadth of the community and celebrates it,” said Dr. Massey.
The Detroit resident and Flint native holds an honorary doctorate in Fine Arts from Grand Valley State University and studied at the University of London’s Slade Institute of Fine Arts. Dr. Massey learned fresco technique from former assistants of legendary artist Diego Rivera. Locally, his work can be found at the Detroit Athletic Club, the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History and many other spots. Visit hubertmasseymurals.net to see more.
