Artist: Marcus Akinlana

ARTsolutely is a tribute to Philly’s arts community, the Francisville neighborhood where it is located and its role in the Civil Rights Movement. The mural is on the side of the Arts Garage, a performance venue for emerging artists. Its owner, Ola Solanke, is depicted in the mural, dressed in blue and playing the African talking drum.
