Artists for George
3759 Chicago Avenue, Minneapolis, MN, USA
A memorial to George Floyd at the intersection of his murder at 38th and Chicago in South Minneapolis surrounded by potted plant, stuffed animals and cut flower bouquets. A cardboard sign reads in black Sharpie lettering "Artists for George." Behind the foreground, other memorials and chalk drawings are visible nearby. A flowerbed, painted black, reads "No Justice No Peace" in bold white painted lettering.
The photographer stood outside of Cup Foods in order to take this image. Cup Foods was the corner store that had called the police to accuse Floyd of attempting to make a purchase with a counterfeit bill, ultimately leading to the fatal confrontation that resulted in his death.
