(Chicago, IL, August 2-4, 2013) - Johalla Projects is collaborating with Lollapalooza to create large-scale murals on this year’s entrance-way to Perry’s stage at the 2013 festival in Grant Park.
A shipping container at the entrance-way to the Perry’s stage section will feature murals from artist Ryan Travis Christian and a collaboration between Don’t Fret, CZR PRZ, and Brooks Golden.
