Description

A mural on the exterior of the Springboard for the Arts building in Saint Paul, MN. A plywood mural with a white background. A blue "blues for george" (George Floyd portrait stencil) is on the right. Blue letters on the left spell out: " Say His Name". The background on the left is a white and grey checkered background.

Someone has written in black marker "Long Live C---laou(?)" (illegible) "Justice 4 Ryan G" "BLM!"
It is unclear if these messages are part of the original mural or if they were added later. This piece was created with permission during a paint event hosted by Springboard for the Arts.

KBK: ""Blues for George" was the title someone at Springboard for the Arts used in reference to this mural specifically. I do not know if that is its official name, but I will use it for now."
