Professional and novice artists alike focused their talents on beautifying South Grand businesses on November 25, 2014. The community had endured destruction or vandalism in the hours after the grand jury declared that it would not indict Ferguson officer Darren Wilson for fatally shooting Michael Brown on August 9. Later in the day, colorful murals had decorated boarded-up windows, and many businesses had reopened. Read more about South Grand restaurant closings and about the November 24 protests. Watch a video about the art project.
