2209 E Lake St, Minneapolis, MN, USA
A large 6 part plywood mural has been painted white. "Disconnect" has been painted in bubble letters on the left 3 panels. Surrounding this lettering, various symbols appear such as a TV with the word "lies" painted in the center, a needle, a virus graphic, a Wall Street Sign, a bullet, a money sign, a fire, a phone, a fist, a heart with "Taylor" painted inside, a sunset or sunrise, a pencil, music notes, a receipt for 2020, and text reading "educate our youth." Within these symbols the names of those murdered by police are painted in red. These include "Grant," "Castile," "Floyd," "Brown," "Rice," "Gray," "Garner," "Martin," and "Bland." The far right panel shows blue and white painted lettering spelling "Respect" with various symbols painted under it. The panel next to this is painted with swirls of multi colored psychedelic swirls. The center panel shows an orange figure and a ringed planet. It appears that multiple artists participated in this large mural.
