About the Art
Storm Print City was created by Russell Muits, a New jersey native who studied design in Philadelphia. In the fall of 2007, he pulled his first print from a manhole cover in downtown Seattle.
Since then, he has been hunting down the most interesting and beautifully designed covers in the country and, through ink and canvas, transforming them into unique pieces of art. The best examples of these are more than just functional chunks of steel. Through their intricate designs, they capture the essence of a city’s character, providing a window into its history and the craftsmanship of yesteryear.
Currently, he has over 200 unique pieces from 50+ cities across the U.S. Russell reached out to the foundation after hearing about the water crisis here in Flint and wanted to help. He drove from Chicago first to create the prints and then to deliver the stretched art.
