Shots of the mural in progressive states of completion have been posted on local blogs, so we decided to go see it for ourselves.
Providence Daily Dose on 7/23
Greater City Providence on 7/20
The mural was commissioned by AS220 to celebrate their 25th anniversary. Fairey and Brandon Edens will both receive the AS220's "Free Culture Award" as well.
We love the mural and are excited to see the finished product. Once it's complete, we'll photo and blog it again.
UPDATE: Fairey was interviewed by offManhattan.
