Memorial for George
3800 Chicago Avenue, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA
A wide-view of Chicago Avenue directly next to Cup Foods shows a variety of memorials to Floyd, including decorated flowerbeds overflowing with thriving plant life, chalk drawings covering the pavement, cut flowers, cardboard signs, and other tributes. To the left of Cup Foods, a large black and white portrait of Floyd by Peyton Scott Russell is mounted on a MetroTransit bus shelter.
The location in which George Floyd was murdered by the Minneapolis Police Department has since been transformed into a memorial. The zone, regarded as "George Floyd Square," is filled with memorial tributes to Floyd. Residents from the neighborhood maintain that the streets remain barricaded off in order to protect the area from traffic.
