There's A Jerry Garcia Mural Keeping Watch Over Cook County Jail Inmates

It sits at the corner of 26th Street and Sacramento, on the garage door of a warehouse for Metomic, a manufacturing company.

    There's A Jerry Garcia Mural Keeping Watch Over Cook County Jail Inmates
    LITTLE VILLAGE - There's an unlikely person keeping watch on the inmates of Cook County Jail: late Grateful Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia. Garcia, not exactly a stringent rule follower during his long run as a leader of the counterculture movement (his nickname was "Captain Trips" in the '60s because of his prolific acid intake, for example), has been memorialized on a mural overlooking the huge Chicago jail.
