“Take Back the Power,” by Gregg Deal

Artist and activist Deal painted one of the city’s most eye-catching murals over a few scorching July days. In “Take Back the Power,” a 77-foot-tall mural on the east brick wall of what used to be Carlie’s Convenience Store, the Peyton-based Deal painted his teenage daughter, Sage Deal, with a red handprint covering the lower half of her face. The work is intended to bring awareness to Indigenous women, girls and LGTBQ people who face a high risk of going missing or being murdered. It’s part of the annual Art on the Streets exhibit.
