New Robin Williams Mural in Chicago Promotes Suicide Awareness
Over the weekend a new mural popped up honoring the late Robin Williams in his hometown.
The painting is on the side of the Concord Music Hall and features a black and white portrait of the late, celebrated, beloved actor surrounded by a bunch of animated genies.
The genies are a nod to the role Williams played in the 1992 animated Disney classic Aladdin.
The mural is a collaboration of several local street artists with the project serving as a commentary on the career of Robin Williams.
A career of performances that brought joy to the public while he himself dealt with the private battle of depression and internal strife.
Since September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, it makes sense that the mural went up now.
Williams himself sadly took his own life in August of 2014 at the age of 63.
