Project Backboard- Transforming Basketball Courts into Art



 Basketball is one of those favorite sports for a lot of young kids.  Children flock to basketball courts after school, and sometimes even have their own hoop in their yard.  Many courts however get old and dingy fast and need to be renovated. Well, former basketball player Daniel Peterson and artist Anthony Lee collaborated to do some renovating of their own, starting with the city of Memphis.  Now, Project Backboard is spreading to other cities like St. Louis and Los Angeles with local artists in the area.  Check out some of the bright and colorful courts that have been re-done so far!
