Frankie Knuckles’ beloved Chicago mural set for rebirth

Frankie Knuckles’ beloved Chicago mural set for rebirthFrankie Knuckles Mural Chicago

Three years after its demolition, the beloved Frankie Knuckles mural is set to return to the Windy City in a new location.

The mural first appeared in Chicago’s Logan Square following the passing of the house music legend in March of 2014. After a little over a year, the tribute was destroyed after its host building suffered severe water damage. The vibrant tribute quickly became a landmark, attracting house heads from around the globe. The sudden removal of the mural dismayed the city’s art and music community, and it wasn’t long before the local street artist creators of the original launched a successful GoFundMe campaign to restore the tribute.

Knuckles is universally recognized as a central figure in the genesis of house music. After moving to Chicago from the Bronx in the late 1970s, he helped to expand and push the sound to new levels of recognition. The Frankie Knuckles Foundation announced Wednesday that a new permanent home has finally been found – and hinted strongly that the unveiling will take place on Frankie Knuckles Day (August 25):

“It is with great pleasure that we announce the relocation of this great tribute to our beloved Frankie. After months of meetings and various site visits we finally found a new home for it…thanks to the generosity of Levar Hoard and the B_line this beautiful tribute has a new home. We will be celebrating completion of their work next week on Frankie Knuckles Day Saturday August 25th…please join us as we celebrate. Details to be announced shortly.”
