Amazing Robin Williams ‘Genie’ Mural Painted in Chicago to Promote Suicide Awareness

A mural honoring the late Robin Williams has been painted in his hometown, and serves as a powerful reminder about seeking help during suicide prevention month.

The painting of Williams, who was born in Chicago, surrounded by his iconic Disney character, the Genie from “Aladdin,” was erected over the weekend on the side of the Concord Music Hall in The Windy City.

The project is apparently a collaboration between local street artists, and appears to serve as a juxtaposition between the entertaining characters that Williams created, and the pain he suffered quietly on the inside.

September is suicide prevention awareness month, and it’s been over four years since Williams committed suicide at his home at the age of 63.
