Mural  |  Michael Sklenka  |  Detroit, MI

About This Installation

This mural depicts two children who have stumbled on a pile of books that have been thrown in the trash. The subject matter speaks to a year of learning in isolation, and the value of discovery in teaching yourself something you love.

Artist Bio

Michael is an artist and architect living and working in Detroit. Since receiving a degree in architecture from the University of Detroit, his focus is forever flowing between all expressions of art and design - buildings, furniture, clothing, paintings, and all the bridges in between.

NOTE: Some images are submission proposals. Final artwork photos will be posted after the artist has completed their installation prior to June 1, 2021.
