A large portrait of John Lewis completed in purple tones covers a storefront. The portrait is named "John Lewis" in red script and a halo over the "o" in "John." The background of the mural is done in an orange and red wash with white clouds. A bridge with people in the center sits to the left of the portrait. Above the bridge white script reads "Together You Can Redeem The Soul of This Nation." John Lewis wrote an essay entitled "Together You Can Redeem The Soul of This Nation" shortly before his death in July 19th, 2020. A Civil Rights activist and politician, John Lewis was part of the "Big Six" who organized the walk on Washington in 1963. The mural additionally reads "VOTE" in purple and white block letters on the right side.
