Paul Castaway and Son Mural at People's Way
38th Street and Chicago Ave, George Floyd Square, South Minneapolis, MN, USA
What was previously a Speedway Gas Station, has been reclaimed by George Floyd Square and re-named "Peoples' Way." Under the updated sign is a mural of Paul Castaway and his son. This mural is created with multicolored washes. These colors include blue, yellow, teal, green, pink, orange, red, and purple. Two blue painted bears originate from Paul Castaway's head, where his name appears along with red script reading "Remember My Name." His birth and death are recorded in-between the two portraits "10/10/79-7/12/15." At the end of the Peoples' Station a quote by Malcom X reads "The Future Belongs to Those Who Prepare For It Today." Silver spray painted boards with black script are leaning against the building discussing the death of George Floyd and 24 demands by citizens.
