Turning Basketball Courts Into Works of Art
When basketball courts end up with cracks, dips and divots, Dan Peterson and company step in. With the help of artists and community volunteers, Project Backboard resurfaces public courts and turns them into fly, large-scale pieces of art. The organization has brought new life and sleek aesthetics to over two dozen basketball courts around the world—including in Dan’s hometown of New Rochelle, New York. Working with local volunteers, Project Backboard brought artist Scott Albrecht’s multi-colored vision to life. To see more of Scott’s work, check out: https://www.scottalbrecht.com.
