Talk about a perfect collaboration. To create the cover image and simultaneously promote the new album Wakin on a Pretty Daze from Philly's Kurt Vile, artist Steve Powers painted a giant wall-sign in the home of the Liberty Bell. The design by former graffiti writer Powers even draws on the tunes themselves, giving it some extra no-BS legitimacy for Philadelphians. Check out the video for more insight on the collaboration and some great views of work by Powers, then visit firstandfifteenth.net for more signs by Powers.
