Located in New Haven, CT at the corner of Division Street and Dixwell Avenue the Sparrow Squadron mural was created in response to an egregious incident of gun violence where Yale University Police Officer Terrance Pollock & Hamden Police Officer Devin Eaton fired a total of sixteen bullets into the car of Stephanie Washington & Paul Witherspoon, an unarmed black couple. The incident occurred 0.2 miles away from this wall. Birds are representative of peace and freedom, two important aspects of life police gun violence robs from a community. Sparrows are featured as they are small, often overlooked, birds that are beautiful and ubiquitous to the community.
