When Internet sensation, Grumpy Cat, passed away few months ago, the world mourned over this comically expressive cat who had been the face of countless memes since she first appeared on a Reddit thread back in 2012. Now, months after her death, her memory is being honored on a street corner in Milwaukee by a group of local artists and we think it's beautiful! Story via: Cole & Marmalade
A group called Summer Sprays hosted a “graffiti jam” where they worked together to put up 7 murals throughout the north side of Milwaukee.
Sam Essak, co-owner of Schuster Metals, said they asked the artists to tag the wall of their building as a way to bring color to their street corner.

Her giant disapproving eyes and trademark scowl look out over the street to remind everyone to be #GrumpyForever.
