 Artists Honor George Floyd

The George Floyd Memorial outside Cup Foods at Chicago Ave and E 38th St in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

As protests surrounding the death of George Floyd have erupted across the US and around the world, artists have joined their voices in the call to honor his life, put an end to systemic racism, and stop police violence in communities of color.

Beginning at the site of his arrest, outside of Cup Foods at the corner of 38th Street and Chicago Avenue South in Minneapolis, murals and graffiti have sprung up around the world up, honoring Floyd’s life and value by repeating his name. Greta McLain, Xena Goldman, and Cadex Herrera painted the first memorial mural, which is now a site for communal grieving and protest.
