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.

KEZI 9 News confirmed with the city of Eugene that the group received the proper city permit for the mural.

The group said it is planning to create art displays at Skinner Butte Park and Alton Baker Park.
