A new mural depicting the late actor Michael K. Williams is set to be unveiled in Fort Greene this Saturday. 

The depiction of the Brooklyn-born actor, who starred as Omar Little in The Wire, will cover a large portion of the brick wall located next to the subway stop at the corner of South Portland and Lafayette Aves. Painted in vibrant colors, the depiction of the actor’s smiling facade is meant to honor the artistic legacy of a Brooklyn-born artist. 

“The inspiration for the piece is to pay homage to a Brooklyn son, artist and activist who touched so many with his art and heart,” says Sally Rumble, the artist behind the mural. “I figured I could give back some of my art from my heart.”
