Artists Create Black Lives Matter Mural in New York City

New York City artists were hard at work creating a Black Lives Matter mural as a form of ‘art therapy,’ in Manhattan, outside the Federal Court and the City Hall, on Friday.

“We are doing things like this because we are showing that New York has a very rich and diverse art history,” said artist CJ. “A lot of the world loves New York culture, and you know, the hip hop culture that was birthed here.”

Ana Luna, another artist working on the mural, said that “as creative people we are vessels. Vessels meaning we can amplify feelings.”

The BLM slogan is being painted near the New York City Police Department (NYPD) headquarters, where violent clashes took place between anti-racism protesters and police on Tuesday.

Anti-racism protests have swept the US and the world following the death of 46-year-old George Floyd at the hands of a white police officer on May 25.
