Murals created during George Floyd protests are up for auction
Dozens of businesses in downtown Asheville boarded up their windows when protesters marched in the wake of George Floyd’s murder in Minneapolis. Those planks of wood became the canvases for painted murals that remained up through the summer of 2020 and beyond.
The online auction benefits the Martin Luther King, Jr. Association of Asheville, Buncombe County’s COPE Program and a community grant program of the arts council. Bidding ends Feb. 28.
