It is not clear who he is, where he came from or how long he will stay, this intriguing image apparently seen thus far only on the east side of town. His eyes have a gentle look and his message, as written on the building is “You are cared for.”
A similar image was reported in the downtown area. RoundTable reporters, although given the location, were unable to find that one, and have since learned it has been removed.
A third image, painted on a red brick, found its way to the RoundTable office. A photo of that is in aRound Town. The bearer had found it near a park. She wished to remain anonymous but gave the locations to the RoundTable about where the other images might be found. (She is known to the RoundTable, and it is clear that she is a discoverer of the works, not the artist.)
In accordance with her wishes, the RoundTable will not give the exact locations of the images, because, as she said, “We don’t want anyone destroying them.”
The RoundTable welcomes any information about the image, the message and the artist, as well as photos of the image in any location: firstname.lastname@example.org or 847-864-7741.
In the meantime, with so many things locally, nationally and internationally to weigh heavy on the mind, it may be nice for everyone to know “you are cared for.”
