In the wake of the murder of George Floyd, the Museum of Graffiti brought together 8 artists to paint a mural that served as an educational teaching tool for visitors and members of our community. The mural, which spells out AMERICAN HISTORY, portrayed famous figures who have been integral parts in standing up for change in our country. The mural tells the story of race relations in chronological order, starting with the 1800's and the time of slavery shown inside the "A" in American. Along the mural you encounter other key figures until you get to George Floyd in the "Y" at the end of the word "History." As you approached each letter, QR codes took you to educational videos with information about the accomplishments of each hero. Because the mural was recently destroyed, we proudly release this commemorative print that features the work of artists 1DER, Kyle Holbrook, Tierra Armstrong, E-Tone, Cyst, Ket, Cale K2S, and PHD.
