Work started on mural for 9-story Detroit building

A new mural has been started on a building that’s being developed in Detroit’s New Center area.

Real estate developer The Platform said Detroit artist Sydney G. James’ “The Girl with the D Earring” will adorn the western wall of the Chroma building in Milwaukee Junction.

The mural is expected to be completed by mid-September. It will portray a Detroit woman wearing a quilted garment featuring signage and logos of historic North End/Paradise Valley businesses. A glowing Old English “D” that will dangle from her ear is a symbol of Detroit and its residents.
