There’s a brand new Shepard Fairey mural now covering the southern exposure of the building on southwest the corner of First Avenue and 11th Street; former home to Schnitz, and the Viennese bakery Something Sweet before that.

Work on the Rise Above mural was finished as of October 2nd and it took Fairey only about 4 or 5 days to complete. The model is Fairey’s eldest daughter, at age 3 years (she’s now 11).

Remembering Michael Hutchence

Michael Hutchence, lead vocalist of INXS would have celebrated his Birthday today, having been born on January 22, 1962, if he hadn’t died on November 22, 1997 of asphyxiation due to hanging. Adding to the tragedy of his passing, his girlfriend, Paula Yates, died of a heroin overdose in September of 2000. Their daughter, Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily, is now being raised by Yates’ ex-husband, Bob Geldof. Rest in Peace, Michael and Paula.
