Wall of Respect, which was created in the Bronzeville neighborhood, at 43rd and Langley, in 1967. Fourteen designers and artists worked on it, including Chicago muralist William Walker.
We want the work to look like the creator made it through us . . . We want the things to shine, to have the rich luster of a just-washed ’Fro, of spit-shined shoes . . . Color that shines . . . Color that defines, identifies and directs . . . Coolade colors for coolade images for superreal people.
