info about windows on sides from the artist: “I wrote “Black and Brown children deserve a childhood full of joy and innocence, free of darkness, pain, or violence.”

I tried to make a more positive version of a piece I had done in 2014 that I had made out of anger and frustration.

The flowers used in this mural all symbolize innocence or joy: daisies, felicia, freesia, lilac, bugle lilies, and chrysanthemums. Sorry for potato quality for some of the photos.”
Notes: Part of George Floyd protests. Work in progress below. The mural was later updated, as pictured below.
