- Apple has donated the mural at its Pioneer Place Apple Store to Don't Shoot Portland.
Apple has donated the mural at its Pioneer Place Apple Store in Portland, Oregon to Don't Shoot Portland, a "Black-led human rights nonprofit that advocates for accountability."
The organization announced the donation on Wednesday, January 21, saying that they have accepted the responsibility of "preserving the Apple @ Pioneer Place panels that reflect the responses of so many that were witnesses to this summers' uprisings and the joint call to action against institutionalized violence and white nationalism."
Apple had originally put up the panels in response to unrest between protestors and law enforcement during the social justice protests over the summer, and they quickly became a canvas for artists to create a mural focused on seeking justice for those who have been lost.
The company preserved the panels but it was unknown until now what would happen with them. It is currently unclear what Don't Shoot Portland will do just yet with the art. They have asked that anyone who was part of the mural's creation to reach out to them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
