Jack's Looking Pensive

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 12 May 2020 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

STatue of Jack Benny recently outfitted with a face mask. This STatue is located in downtown Waukegan, Illinois (his hometown). He STares across the STreet toward the Genesee Theatre which is shuttered due to the COVID pandemic.

This mask is homemade. You can't waste a much-needed mask on an inanimate object. It's a PSA without saying a word.

Happy Silly Tuesday!

I did not notice the violin until you named the subject. I believe the statue has played as many notes as the comedian did.
