Less than 24 hours after the death of Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, a new mural dedicated to the two popped up in Mid-City.



Those interested just need to stop by, grab a brush and share what Kobe meant to them.

"This is an open invitation to anybody in the community, to bring their kids, to paint sections of the mural so anytime they drive by they can proudly say that they did this, that they helped paint that," Prado said.

She believes that creating the art helps people process the loss. The painting will continue Monday from noon to 6 p.m.
