The Bob Marley: Messenger exhibition opens October 10 with a live concert by Jahfe, drinks, and a party. The show runs for three months and includes memorabilia like Bob's guitar, his Bible, family photos, and much more.

By the time you read this, Trek's mural will be done, and you can check out the private collection preview currently on display too.

Trek6 says, "To be doing something like this in a museum is an honor. I've never done anything like it. I feel like every step forward that I take is a step forward for all us locals. It's just art. I don't even like calling it street art or urban art. Those are just labels made to break it down so someone can market it."

"It took me a while to realize, but Bob Marley's left eye sort of falls asleep a bit. If you remove that detail from his face it doesn't even look like him."
