According to the Capital Gazette, artists and volunteers will paint a 7,000-square-foot mural of Breonna Taylor in a historically Black neighborhood of Annapolis Saturday, the latest work by muralist Jeff Huntington.

The mural at Chambers Park in Parole will honor the young Black woman shot and killed by police in her Louisville, Kentucky apartment on March 13, a death that sparked protests and calls for the officers involved to be arrested and charged. Taylor was sleeping in her home when police executed a no-knock warrant.

Huntington, other artists and volunteers will paint Taylor’s image from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, and again on Sunday if more time is needed. Huntington said the project will likely take two days.
