Call your hero (2006)

Call your hero via 100wordminimum:

North 25th and East Marshall Streets

There used to be more.

Once there was a break-in and the owner (I assume) painted a notice on the front about the break-in and requested any witnesses to call him with information. “Be a Hero!” Then a woman painted a mural over the break-in notices and integrated the notices into the mural. The gray-painted plywood over the storefront windows? That’s where the mural was. There was a blue sky with puffy clouds, a black Jesus Christ superhero flying downward (“Saints ain’t all ascendin'”), and small portraits of Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King Jr. and others. Then that was painted over. “Call you-r hero” and a bit of the blue sky in the coffering over the entry are all that remain. Except that recently the “Call you-r” and “Hero” panels have been removed.
