Honor Your Roots

The city of Philadelphia’s Mural Arts Program will be honoring The Roots. PMR is decideing on the exact location of where the mural will be painted, but no final descisions have been made yet. South Street between 3rd and 6th is being looked at because of its history with The Roots, this is where they played some of their earliest shows, but that is not the only reason. The group’s co-founder Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter has a standing history with Philadelphia’s Mural Arts Program. Back in the day when it was part of the city’s Anti-Graffiti Network, he had to serve 150 hours of community service after getting busted for graffiti. “It’s just an amazing blessing and so ironic for there to be a legal mural of The Roots,” Trotter joked before adding, “I never imagined in my wildest dreams that something like this would take place.” ~NEWS.GOOGLE.COM

{Mural Arts also made a call for proposals to begin the process of selecting the artist or artist teams that will be responsible for engaging the community in all phases of the mural-making process, from design through execution. The proposal can be downloaded at: MURAL ARTS .
The deadline is November 21, 2011.}WEEKLYPRESS.COM
