Following the death of Georg Floyd and protests against police brutality, “The Lift Every Voice Mural Tour” was created through a collaboration with DJ Kay Rich, Dulce Upfront, and several local artists. The mural tour, which is located downtown, was created for and with community members seeking to participate in the movement through art. With support from the community, organizers hope to reach 16 murals that visually uplift and honor lives.
Amidst the pandemic and political turmoil, the mural tour has offered community members an avenue to become engaged and heal alongside other community members. As Ome said, “Anything about me without me is not for me.” In addition to adding color to the walls around Fresno, the mural tour has shown what community efforts can accomplish, and therefore, the murals should bring hope and trust in their community.
