Guitarist and bandleader Richard Barnes is proposing a mural honoring South Philadelphia's legendary musician, Eddie Lang. (Salvatore Massaro).
Richard will discuss this at the next community meeting Wednesday evening at the Palumbo Recreation Center, 10th and Fitzwater.
"This mural will depict Eddie Lang as the center piece, honoring him as a musician, local resident ( St Albans St) , Italian American.
I plan to incorporate elements of his life including a smaller photo of Venuti, Bing Crosby, Bessie Smith and the James Campbell School, as well as utilizing vintage photos I've found of the intersection from the 19teens/20s."
I am attaching a rough first draft showing my ideas.
