This exhibit tells the story of the creation and destruction of Black Lives Matter murals in Uptown Minneapolis in the summer of 2020. During the protests that followed George Floyd's murder, many businesses were boarded up, and activists as well as businesses painted murals on the plywood boards memorializing George Floyd and other victims of police brutality and celebrating the Black Lives Matter movement. The photographs in this exhibit were taken throughout that summer as murals went up and then began to be taken down.
