Officials announced Monday that the Grammy-winning hip-hop group will be the subject of a mural in the city. The eight-month project will include a storefront art studio and arts education programs for students.

Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson and Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter formed The Roots in 1987 after meeting at Philadelphia’s High School for Creative and Performing Arts. They are the house band for “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” on NBC.

The city’s Mural Arts Program is soliciting proposals for the design at http://www.muralarts.org. The mural is planned for a funky shopping area known as South Street and is expected to be unveiled next summer.

It will be one of more than 3,500 murals across the city.
