New Black Lives Matter mural takes shape in downtown Spokane

SPOKANE, Wash. — A new mural in downtown Spokane is taking shape in a big way. 

The words ‘Black Lives Matter’ have been painted along a building at 244 West Main. Employees at 14Four and Seven2, a digital advertising company, volunteered their time and the canvas. 

The mural is not done yet. 16 artists will each get to paint their own letter. 

“We’ve had people coming by all day, taking selfies in front of it sign as we’ve been painting on it, driving by and honking, riding their bikes, so the community has been really behind it,” said Jeff Oswalt, the company’s president. 

All artists have already been curated to paint the mural.
