Atta, a lover of art, decided to use it for a mural dedicated to the memory of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement.
More than 30 community members and artists participated in creating the mural.
After finishing the Floyd mural and receiving such a positive response to it, another property owner a few block away at Holton and Locust donated space for a mural to Breonna Taylor.
This mural was done by artists Ruben Alcantar and Chris Burke.
The three female artists, Marlena Eanes (left); Megan Milwaukee honors victims of police violence with inspiring murals Goers (right); and Angelique Byrne (not pictured) decided to use the space to paint a mural entitled “Safer at Home,” because the women featured in the mural were all killed in their own homes.
