Share this:

After the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police and protests calling for justice in Minneapolis and around the nation, Molly Montana ’23 went to Lake Street to capture the work of local artists that emerged on walls and plywood boards covering the windows of numerous businesses. “I wanted to tell the story of the pain and rage that people of color have felt,” she said about the images she captured for a photography class project. “I wanted to capture something meaningful, and these displays were just that. They are a piece of history.”
