thanks to Pitchfork for the nice bit of news!
Watch the making of The Black Swans limited vinyl album covers:
This video features members of Arc North Workshop in the process of painting album jackets for Change! by The Black Swans. Arc North is a sheltered art workshop, a branch of Franklin County Board of MRDD. They provide services for 300 adults with developmental challenges and recognize their talents by offering an environment that reinforces their confidence and self expression.
The limited edition vinyl version (LSE 007.5) features original, one of a kind artwork by workshop members who applied their expression to 500 blank album jackets.
The original album cover painting, Untitled, is by Debbie Porchetti, a member of Arc North Workshop.
