TUCSON, Ariz. — A local artist showed her support for the Black Lives Matter movement by painting a mural in Downtown Tucson Wednesday.

Camila Ebarra started painting at Hotel Congress around 5 a.m. and continued throughout the day.

She says she's a full time student and couldn't make the protest so this is her best way of showing support.

"We all want equality. We all want to make a difference," she said. "So I hope it touches somebody. I hope I can make a difference by putting this mural here."

Ebarra says it's not her first mural, but she says it is her first statement piece.

Tucsonans couldn't help but to notice the work of art as they walked by, and it even got the attention of Tucson Mayor Regina Romero on Twitter.
