Amazing Aurora Tribute Art on Instagram (Photos)

Instagram users are reaching out to Colorado’s victims with moving works of graphic art. See the best images.

Often in the wake of tragedies like the shooting in Aurora, Colorado, Internet users create graphical tributes as a way of honoring the victims. In this case, the tragedy’s connection to the new Batman film—the gunman opened fire at a midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises—gives a poignant edge to some of Hollywood’s most iconic imagery. Here is a selection of the most moving works being shared on Instagram. As each image is generally shared and re-shared dozens of times, it is nearly impossible to find the original authors, but their contributions have no doubt been appreciated widely.
