EUGENE, Ore. -- A local group of artists called the Eugene BIPOC Art Collective is behind a new mural painted in front of the Wayne L. Morse U.S. Courthouse in downtown Eugene.

It's on East 8th Avenue, spelled out using yellow paint. The letters are then covered in hand prints using black paint. 

BIPOC stands for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color.
