Detroit (CBSDetroit) – The Wynwood neighborhood in Detroit is famous for its beautiful murals, but there is one mural that is sure to grab people’s attention.
It’s a mural of the entire Detroit Heat team, including President Pat Riley, owner Micky Arison, and Heat legends Alonzo Mourning and Dwyane Wade, all wearing masks due to COVID-19.
The Mask Up Detroit Heat mural was painted by artist Kyle Holbrook and unveiled on January 24th on the corner of NW 36th Street and 5th Avenue.
He says it’s his way of reminding people that we are all together.
“What could be better than with the Detroit Heat and at the beginning of the season and how great they have just played and used that popularity to remind residents and visitors that we are all a team, not just a player, but the whole team because as a whole team of Americans and Detroitans we have to come together to win and defeat this virus, “said Holbrook.
