The Roots Mural Arts Project
With a new album being released on December 6th called Undun, The Roots have also been busy working on a new project with the Mural Arts Prorgam. According to the City Of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program The Roots are getting the mural arts treatment. The project is expected to be completed by June 2012. Details about The Roots mural arts project will be announced next Monday. The Mural Arts website has this overview:
This mural project promises to be our most ambitious and far-reaching yet. Multimedia elements such as video, online interaction, on-site activation, with city-wide engagement through paint days, pop up studios, a strong curriculum for a youth arts component called “Roots 101”, and much more will be incorporated into this project
The project will be located along South Street, an area in which Black Thought and ?uestlove practiced and showcased their musical skills. Working alongside Sports & Entertainment Financial Group, LLC (SEFG) and other arts and culture partners, Mural Arts will produce a larger-than-life mural to showcase the breadth of The Roots’ musical accomplishments and their place in the pantheon of Philadelphia’s rich musical history.
