  2. BLACK LIVES MATTER MURALS DISPLAYED AT MARION COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARY | Central Library, 40 E. St. Clair St, Indianapolis, parking garage off of Pennsylvania.

    On display now thru Jan 20. To check out a 3 by 5 ft banner (replica of original work), search for “racial justice murals” in the indypl.org catalog and request pickup at any of the library’s 23 locations.
