Following news that officer Darren Wilson would not be indicted on Tuesday night, an evening of protests led to the vandalism of restaurants and businesses in Ferguson as well as South Grand.

Artists convened throughout the day and well into the evening with brushes in hand as onlookers stopped to snap photos.
