Robert Sestok’s Third Man mural @ MetroTimes
Cass Corridor artist Robert Sestok is perhaps best-known for his welded sculptures assembled from scrap metals, which can be seen along the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy, adorning residential properties in Woodbridge, and of course, at City Sculpture — the Cass Corridor sculpture park that Sestok organized and opened in 2015, adjacent to his longtime studio space.
But sculpture is not his sole medium. As Verses, his 2012 solo exhibition at the College for Creative Studies Center Galleries, proved he might also be remembered as a muralist.
Sestok’s Cass Corridor history caught the eye of musician Jack White, who was recently able to realize a homecoming of sorts with the opening of a retail location and record-pressing facility for his imprint, Third Man Records, situated in the heart of the redeveloping Midtown area.
