Spokane artist restores defaced George Floyd mural in downtown Spokane
SPOKANE, Wash. — Spokane artist Daniel Lopez restored a George Floyd mural in downtown Spokane, which had been vandalized and covered in white paint last week.
The mural was painted by Lopez, found on the side of Shacktown Community Cycle; on Friday, it was found covered in white paint.
Mountains move. We now return to our regularly scheduled program @shacktowncommunitycycle #blm mural restoration. #georgefloyd #blacklivesmatter #humanityfirst #lovetrumpshate #spokane #wa #pnw #supportlocal
Since then, Shacktown said they are hoping for donations for a surveillance system, as they did not have one at the time.
This mural is one of several to spring up around the nation following the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis Police earlier this year. His death was the catalyst for impassioned protests across the country in the weeks since.
