The alien frog mural, also known as “Jeremiah the Innocent,” was painted by singer songwriter Daniel Johnston in 1993. It’s a popular photo opportunity, and Jeremiah even appeared on a T-shirt that Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain once wore. On Christmas Eve 2013, a woman spray-painted the mural with five F-words.
