BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Buffalo is marking the completion of its latest public art project, a mural depicting 28 civil rights leaders.

The Freedom Wall is located in the Michigan Street African American Heritage Corridor.

It was painted by four Buffalo artists as part the Albright-Knox Art Gallery’s Public Art Initiative, which integrates art into public spaces.

Among leaders whose portraits fill the wall are national figures such as Rosa Parks and Malcolm X, as well as prominent Buffalo politicians George K. Arthur and Arthur Eve.

A community celebration marking completion of the project is scheduled for Sunday.
