Graffiti Alley



I'm making the most of my (f)un-employment here in Michigan before our big move next week. Earlier this week, I went 'home' to Detroit to see my parents and say my goodbyes to my family. While in Detroit, there were a few things I wanted to see and do before I left, so I made the most of my free time by going on mini-day-adventures.

One day trip that had been on my list for at least two years was to visit Graffiti Alley in Ann Arbor. I wanted to see what this alleyway was all about and eat my way through downtown Ann Arbor, so I convinced my mom to go with me and away we went.

To my surprise graffiti alley is tiny... Literally, just an alleyway. Regardless, the time I spent with my mom made the trip well worth and the food was amazing, so no complaints!

I absolutely love the art of graffiti and am constantly seeking out graffiti parks and alleys when we travel. A fun fact about me is I wish I was a graffiti artist. I am obsessed with this form of rebellious art and statements made through this platform. One day, I hope to make my statement here in this alleyway and other places throughout Detroit.
