Kris Rhymes Art Installation at IPS


A Gift to the I Promise School

Today the experiential learning continued for all 240 students at the I PROMISE School in Akron - the newly-opened public school established in partnership between the LeBron James Family Foundation and Akron Public Schools - as they received a special visit from artist Kris Rhymes. The Phoenix, Arizona-based visual artist made the trip to Akron to personally donate a special piece of his called “Kings Music” to the I PROMISE School and to engage with the students who will have a special lesson about art incorporated into their daily learning.

 

Rhymes’ piece “Kings Music” is a composition of art made of 12-inch vinyl album covers – cut in pieces of famous recording artists all from Ohio used to create LeBron’s image. Some of the performers featured in the piece include Dean Martin, John Legend, The O’Jays, Macy Gray, The Isley Brothers, Ohio Players, Kid Cudi, Bootsy Collins, Bone Thugs -N- Harmony, Nine Inch Nails, Art Tatum and Tracy Chapman. Created in 2017, “Kings Music” is a part of his “Cover to Cover” collection.

 

After learning about the I PROMISE School, Rhymes’ offered to personally deliver the special piece to Akron.  

“I hope King’s Music will serve as a source of inspiration to the students of the I Promise School,” said Kris Rhymes.
