Wall of Now: Children of the Wall is a dynamic mural project inspired by the 50th Anniversary of the Wall of Respect , an iconic mural that presented portraits of African-American heroes on a private building on Chicago’s South Side from 1967-1971. Chicago artists Miguel Aguilar (Kane One), Rahmaan Barnes (Statik) and Liz Lazdins (Beloved) collaborate to design and produce the public artwork highlighting the diverse and influential hip-hop community that runs deep throughout Chicago and the South Side. They will also include other artists, musicians, poets and creatives to contribute, utilizing a variety of media including spray paint, wheat paste, photography, and new technology such as cell phone applications.
