Tupac Shakur has already dead, but he's still alive in his mother's heart no matter what. Loves her son very much, Afeni Shakur wants to bring Tupac's bestowal into life by opening the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts, planned to open June 11, 2005.
The project, costs $4 million, revolves around a six-acre campus in the Atlanta suburb of Stone Mountain that includes an art gallery, rehearsal area, offices, gift shop and a "peace garden," where a bronze statue of Tupac will be unveiled in one of its fountains in September. Moreover, there will also an additional planned museum, community meeting space and classrooms.
It is mentioned that of the focused on helping at-risk youth project's cost came from the foundation Afeni set up to receive proceeds from her various Tupac albums, movies, DVDs and other projects, whereas the idea to build the center came from a sad chapter of Afeni's history.
