Last fall we set our sights on a blighted wall at the tennis courts of Orange Grove Park. SPB teamed up with the City Public Works department and the South Pasadena Arts Council to transform the spot into something visually cheerful and charming.
Public Works replaced the old wall and SPARC member and local artist, Kelly Conte, led a group of SPHS student artists to create and paint the mural. The mural depicts three swimmers at the "Plunge", the old South Pasadena swimming pool which was located at the site of the tennis courts many years ago.
Once the painting is completed the surface will be covered in an anti-graffiti protective sealant.
Many thanks to all to helped make this project successful. Here are some before-during-and after photos.
