Mural’s second phase comes to life

Dr. Hubert Massey and his team of Detroit-based artists have been busy recently, working hard to create more stunning imagery that seems to leap off the surface of the sound barrier outside the Detroit Assembly Complex – Mack plant.

The second phase of the project is situated directly across from Southeastern High School, so it’s no surprise that the educational landmark is well represented in the mural. Earlier this year, Dr. Massey sat down with Southeastern art students to get some inspiration for what they thought best represented their school and community.

The end result is a majestic display of the school’s mascot, the Jungaleers, proudly represented through a trio of ferocious roaring, purple-maned lions.

Other iconic imagery includes the school’s “3030” address on Fairview Street, the city’s “313” area code, and an image of a Boblo Island boat and Sarah Elizabeth Ray. Ray was a local civil rights pioneer who was denied a seat on one of the ferries, and subsequently won her fight for integration before the U.S. Supreme Court.

“This is another opportunity to celebrate this great community on the east side,” Dr. Massey, a Detroit resident, said about the mural’s second phase.

The mural project is part of the Community Benefits Agreement (CBA) reached between Stellantis, the City of Detroit and the Neighborhood Advisory Committee.

Partnering with Dr. Massey and Stellantis on the project are Commercial Contracting Corporation (CCC) and PPG, which are providing equipment and supplies.
