Following the death of Chicago's legendary house producer, a mural was erected, which would stand strong, well over the past year. However, after lasting 415 days in its entirety, the Frankie Knuckles tribute will now be completely covered due to building repairs.
Eric Merlos, the owner of the Logan Square building, is disappointed to say that the repairs have become “unavoidable” and an inch-thick layer of cement is needed to prevent further water damage. The mural had been visited by countless people from around the world, but fear not if you never had the chance to visit yourself!
The local artists behind the project have already started a GoFundMe with the hopes of recreating a new mural somewhere else in the city.
