Unexpected '15: "Trail Of Tears", a new piece by D*Face in Fort Smith, Arkansas
Our friend D*Face just finished working on a second mural for the Unexpected Street Art Festival and JustKids which took place on the streets of Fort Smith in Arkansas.
Entitled "Trail Of Tears", the legendary British artist created this simple yet striking concept showing a large white heart, a red target and several Indian arrows. In 1838 and 1839, as part of Andrew Jackson's Indian removal policy, the Cherokee nation was forced to give up its lands east of the Mississippi River and to migrate to an area in present-day Oklahoma. The Cherokee people called this journey the "Trail of Tears," because of its devastating effects.
