The mural, which was painted on the roof of a clothing store shortly after Knuckles' death in 2014, had been removed in 2015 to make way for building repairs.
A group of artists had painted the mural on the roof of a Logan Square clothing store—where it could be seen from the adjacent Blue Line elevated train—shortly after Knuckles died at age 59, but the building's owner had to remove it in 2015 to allow for water damage repairs.
Now, as reported by 5 Magazine, the Frankie Knuckles Foundation has settled on a new home for a reproduction of the mural. The location hasn't been revealed just yet, but the foundation this week suggested a celebration for the new work is being planned for Saturday, August 25th—AKA Frankie Knuckles Day.
