There’s tasteless, and then there’s a mural of the Trayvon Martin shooting that was unveiled at the Florida Capitol last Friday.
Martin is depicted on the left of the mural, his chest spurting blood and his face replaced with a mirror so viewers can see themselves as him. Behind and to the left of the Martin figure is Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., who has blood trickling down his face.
The artwork has spaces where the public can share its thoughts.
The artist, a Miami woman who goes by the name Huong, is a Vietnamese refugee and peace activist.
