Witness powerful and awe-inspiring works of visual art unfold, as artists and muralists reimagine what a basketball court can look like. Ten courts throughout the Capital Region will be transformed like never before, breathing new life, new conversations, and new possibilities into these important public spaces.
Our second instalment of Outside the Lines: A Court Mural Project features Emily Thiessen. Read on to learn more about Emily and the wicked pop-up court design she created at UVic!
