Information:  This mural was an experiment in collaboration by artists wishing to make a positive statement about a social concern-- police brutality. Working as a group and sometimes alone, imagery was developed and painted and revised in a process that mimicked the improvisational nature of the Wall of Respect. The mural was installed on a fence surrounding an abandoned lot. It remained in tact for several months.
