Tom Leeper doesn't consider himself an artist.

Although he loves to ride, he doesn't consider himself a fanatical cyclist, either. However, it is his mission to combine them both with Every Linear Mile.

"It's a bike trip through the city, I'm literally riding up and down the streets in the city," Tom said.

He travels about 5,000 miles on his bike and reports what he sees.

"I take pictures of every piece of art and geotag it," he said. "When I'm finished, I should have a pic of every piece of art in the city.

Tom's mission is to discover, document and map art. The official project began on Feb. 20, 2017. He hopes by doing this, those who live in the Motor City will "be reminded of what beauty is around us."
