1. Truck Angel by @antione_jenkins3 @antz_creationz @yungjustinanderson @wousart
This mural was a collaboration among local artists in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area who were protesting peacefully on the interstate I-35 bridge the day a truck came barreling into the crowd. Fortunately, no one was injured in the incident, which inspired the artists to create the mural above. The mural was located at Spyhouse Coffee, 2404 Hennepin Avenue in Minneapolis.
