Robin Williams Mural

A massive mural of the late Chicago native Robin Williams was painted on the side of the Concord Music Hall by the New Zealand artist Owen Dippie in 2018 to commemorate National Suicide Prevention Awareness month. Out of the hundreds of murals in the city, this is among the most beautiful.

Owen painted the big Robin Williams head, while the surrounding genies from "Aladdin" -- Williams' best-known animated character -- were painted by NYC street artist Jerkface.
