The Roots' Philadelphia Mural to be Unveiled May 31

Thanks to Okayplayer, folks can snag an early preview of the The Roots mural set to be unveiled in Philadelphia next Friday.

The mural, designed by Tatyana Fazlalizadeh and Amber Art and Design, is a part of a two-year project that has celebrated the impact of The Roots on both the Philly and hip-hop communities they represent. Events leading up to the dedication have been citywide paint days, a “Roots 101” youth arts lecture series and pop-up studios.

The ceremony will take place at 11:30 a.m. at the World Communications Charter School and will feature an appearance from The Roots themselves.
