Detroit's Whaling Wall
Haven't you ever wondered about the mural of humpback whales on the Broderick Tower in downtown Detroit? It was created in 1997 by the artist Wyland who was born in the Motor City. It has been his desire to share his oceanic life murals with 100 communities across the world and he met that goal a few years ago painting a wall in Bejiing for the Olympics. He graduated from Lamphere High School in Madison Heights where the pool area contains his 25th whaling wall.
