One-Time Run

Exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of 1xRun, a fine art print studio located in the heart of Detroit.

This 10,000-square-foot art space in Detroit’s historic Eastern Market is home to two exhibition spaces, an artist-in-residency program, a full-time printmaking studio, and fine art publishing company 1xRUN.

Founded in 2010, 1xRUN has meticulously curated over 1,500 daily releases including fine art prints, hand-painted multiples, and collections of original artwork. With over 50,000 members around the world, 1xRUN has revolutionized the way that fans collect art, allowing anyone to take home a piece of work from their favorite artists, no matter where they live or their budget. 

Join us on Obscura Day as we go behind the scenes to see the studio and peek into the archives. Afterwards, explore on your own! Click here for a map of all the murals in Detroit’s historic Eastern Market. More info on Murals In The Market.
