Jenna Rice Portrait of George Floyd

George Floyd

Spray Paint on Plywood Boards

This project was a painting of protest in support of the Black Lives Matter movement in downtown Greensboro, North Carolina.

Rioting in downtown Greensboro led many businesses to board up their doors and windows in early June, 2020. Gina Franco and Jenn Graf coordinated a painting project downtown- connecting local artists with the many plywood boards. Rice was happy to be included and was asked to paint on the panels directly in front of Crafted in downtown Greensboro.

A day after completing her first rendition of the Floyd mural, it was defaced with bright blue spray paint. The very same day, Rice went back to fix the piece.

Rice’s Floyd Mural is to be donated to the National Museum of African American History and Culture- a part of the Smithsonian Museum in Washington D.C.

Special thanks to Kotis Street Art (@kotisstreetart) and Beer Co (@beercogso) for donating supplies for the second rendition of the mural.
