The colors of our great nation's flag come together to create a portrait of President Barack Obama. This mural by Halima Cassell of Detroit Mural Factory, located on the south wall of Eric's I've Been Framed at 16527 Livernois Ave., is definitely a political statement. It was painted during President Barack Obama's campaign with the phrase "Yes We Can" and later changed to "Yes We Did" once Obama was elected. Eric Vaughn, owner of the store, says he wanted to do something to support Obama then later celebrate his victory.
