Flowerbed Tribute to George
3759 Chicago Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55407
A single-level raised flowerbed holding a variety of flourishing plant life painted blue with spray painted stencil details. George Floyd's portrait is painted in white, with a yellow halo, flanked on either side by Black power fists in black paint. A wide array of objects have been placed next to and underneath the flowerbed in memory of George, including but not limited to: prayer candles, Buddha statues, plants and flowers, shoes, painted stones, essential oils, and stuffed animals.
The photographer stood outside of Cup Foods in order to take this image. Cup Foods is the corner store that 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.
