The original musicians mural at 9th and Wharton has been deteriorating for years now. Fundraising began last year and the mural is now getting an updated design and a new location behind the Valley Green Bank at Broad and Tasker.
On Saturday, the artist behind the mural, Eric Okdeh, will be leading a paint day event to get the community involved with the neighborhood’s new mural.
Frankie Avalon, Bobby Rydell, Chubby Checker and Jerry Blavat are among the musicians featured on the new mural design.
This family-friendly event is free and open to the public. The Mural Arts Program will provide all the necessary supplies. The event will run from 12 p.m. through 3 p.m. on Saturday, August 13.
