The Art of Jeff Von Buskirk
The Northville Art House presents two exhibitions of work by Jeff Von Buskirk. In September, Northville’s Old Glory features the story of the 30′ x 45′ U.S. flag mural on Northville’s Marquis Theatre and in October VISUALIQUOR features Jeff’s comic paintings and illustrations.
Sept. 1 – 30: Northville’s Old Glory: Mural & Ephemera by Jeff Von Buskirk
After the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, Inge Zayti, the late founder and owner of the Marquis Theatre, commissioned the painting of a 30′ x 45′ mural of the U.S. flag. Using classic mural technique, artist Jeff Von Buskirk created an internationally acclaimed artwork and one of Northville Michigan’s most recognizable and iconic landmarks in 2002.
Restored through a community-wide effort in 2014, the mural, titled with the words, “America United September 11, 2001,” honors the memory of 9/11 and reflects the community and the nation coming together, then, and now.
The community is invited to learn about the story of the flag, which is globally recognized on the Memorials Registry at the 9/11 Memorial & Museum in New York, and reflect on the 20th anniversary of 9/11.
