Art meets sports. This is the beautiful initiative by the USA Project Backboard association restyling basketball courts that require care and transforms them into works of art thanks to collaborations with various artists.
The last one is the Kinloch Park park in the suburbs of St. Louis. The artist involved in this project is William LaChance, an American artist who creates colorful and large-format paintings.
