An eerie wall.

This odd mural is a familiar sight in Madison, Wisconsin.

Madison.

Madison.

A Grateful Dead-inspired wall mural in Madison? Noooo. Quel surprise. I'd stop for "The Laughing Cavalier" painted on the side of a building.

I don't think it's Grateful Dead related. I believe it's supposed to depict the "politics of food."

The building is the Mifflin Street Food Co-op.

I would've guessed, Capt. Robert's House of Liberal Horrors. Sort of where he keeps all his dusty skeletons too.
I'd have been wrong.

- you've got some talent up there, that's for sure...

I believe that one of the skeletons grasps dollar bills. He's a greedy capitalist of a skeleton, or perhaps the skeleton of a greedy capitalist.

In contrast, there are happy brown-skinned people have plenty of food, presumably because they work for the collective good.

I realize it's not directly related to the Grateful Dead. The style, however, is definitely influenced by the "look" of the artwork on GD t-shirts. That is what I meant.
