Mux Blank is an Athens artist and musician. Below is the statement he posted with the video on April 2, 2020.
Tomorrow we supposedly get put on lockdown here in Athens GA because of the Coronavirus, so I figured tonight was my last chance to get this piece installed. I created what looked like a diy show flyer for some local band’s gig or some local artist’s showing. It could have been any show happening on any given night of the week here in this bustling small town known all around the world for its art, performance, and music scenes. Then I made another and another and another… but as fast as I could make them we started hearing of more and more and more reports of people being pronounced dead due to this pandemic. There’s a good chance that once this has all passed, not one of us will go unscathed or untouched in some way by its cold hands… This piece is deadicated to all the canceled events, all the closed businesses, all the lost jobs, all the sick, and especially all the friends and loved ones lost… entitled “CANCELED”.
