We are designing posters, murals and thought-provoking street art in support of justice for George Floyd. It is an attempt to lift up the people, residents and friends in our community, while driving dialogue around issues of race, and ultimately supporting the next generation of Minneapolis artists. We’re giving out the posters for free to any folks that want them, but demand has been higher than expected. Many people have asked if they can purchase or contribute to get a poster. We’ve been spreading them around Minneapolis during the day, and handing them out most evenings at our house. Our next poster distribution time is Friday, 6/19, from 5:00-7:00, contact us for the address.
If you want to make a donation, please use my wife’s Venmo: @Jennifer-Weaverling. Proceeds will go to a charitable cause here in Minneapolis. We are looking to create a scholarship to honor George Floyd. The scholarship would be awarded to a Minneapolis High School student interested in pursuing a career in art and design. We are also reviewing other non-profit alternatives in support of justice here in Minneapolis at this time. Also please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions in regards to this project. We’ve been posting some pics to the mpls_4_justice Instagram account.
Here’s a link to get a PDF via Dropbox of the poster graphics, if you’d like to print and/or distribute yourself.
