HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Several artists officially unveiled the 'Time for aRtEVOLUTION' installation on Woodson Street and Clinton Avenue. A total of 18 works of art are on display.

Huntsville City Councilman President Devyn Keith was present.

The powerful installation is a reflection of police brutality and race relations. It's been on display since last week with a new painting of Dana Fletcher, a Black man who was shot and killed by Madison Police, but the Madison County District Attorney said  it was justified.

The managing artist of this project, Jahni Moore, says he was moved by Fletcher's mother.

"I was thinking, you know what, I've got to do something. I couldn't rest. So I boarded my studio, I went over, put everything together and just stayed up late, a couple days and did this piece. It's called 'Justice'," says Moore.

The artists plan to move the installation near the Fellowship of Faith Church on North Memorial Parkway some time next month.
