FOX6 News on Friday saw people bringing flowers to the mural. Some stopped to remember Floyd for a moment before leaving. Those who stopped to see the art said it has a deeper meaning of the movement that is going on across the world.

"You got pieces like this that represent what America is. It's about bringing creativity out of tragedy and bad situations and leading while you're bleeding. And focusing on the progress of how we move forward," said Aryahe Delt.

The mural was created in just one day.
