According to CNN, artists Shawn Perkins and David Zambrano teamed up on Saturday to paint the mural of Ginsburg, who died Friday due to complications of metastatic pancreas cancer.

"With the recent passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, there was no question who we would commemorate with this latest piece," Perkins told CNN.

The mural, done with spray paint, was finished on boards that line the outside of Blackfinn Ameripub, just one block from the Black Lives Matter Plaza and two blocks from the White House. The nonprofit PAINTS Institute led the mural.
According to CNN, the artists have recently been collaborating to create murals on boarded-up buildings near the White House to prevent vandalism.
"The purpose is to uplift our community during these unpredictable times, through affirmations of hope and unity, along with honoring those who paved the way for those without a voice," Perkins told CNN.
