You may have been this artwork by Nikkolas Smith before on the ‘net, but now it’s a permanent part of the Downtown Disney shopping district at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim. It depicts the late Chadwick Boseman dressed as the superhero Black Panther sharing the Wakanda salute with a child in a hospital gown and Black Panther mask.
“This one is special. My King Chad tribute is now on a wall on display at Downtown Disney,” he wrote. “It is a full circle moment for me: my final two projects as a Disney Imagineer last summer were working on the children’s hospital project and the Avengers Campus.”
The child in the mural is wearing a hospital gown, to honor the late “Black Panther” star who visited children with cancer at St. Jude campus, while waging a private battle with the disease. The installation is titled “King Chad.”
