One last walk through the infamous auto plant

The Packard Automotive Plant, at one time considered the most advanced auto plant of its time reminds us of a period when Detroit was an industrial powerhouse. Built around 1910 the plant was the home of the Packard Automobile, one of many luxury lines produced in Detroit. The plant closed its doors in 1958 and still stands today awaiting a looming demolition.

The Packard is no stranger to street art, wether Graffiti, Wheat Pasting, or art installations can all be found inside the 32 million square foot plant. Artist like Banksy and Ron English who's wheat paste of a gas masked Mickey seen here, have visited the Packard.
