“I’m very appreciative of Sanford Biggers and his artistic vision of pain, oppression and unjust brutality," McSpadden said in a statement. "This BAM sculpture, dedicated to my son Michael Brown, is an example of our millennial generation’s expression of history, a true testament of our days, our lives, and our country."
The concept of the art collection aims to bring light to the pain of the victims, their families while creating a platform for national dialogue.
