While the genesis of this court remains deeply saddening – it has been inspiring to see @gz.jr realize the vision of @veniceball with such a powerful portrait. I hope that this court is a reminder to everyone who finds peace, joy and friendship within it's borders that working to improve one's own community is among the most powerful actions a person can take. #Repost @shafik ・・・ The Marathon Continues 🏁 #ripnipseyhussle – 🎨 @gz.jr @alfonsogarcialettering @jaasevjournal 🧠@veniceball 📽️ @project_backboard 🏋️👷👷‍♀️ @slowmotion00 @simplyfarnold @trappysmoov @cappa23 @kingericnash @mmcld @georgehobbsart @iammargaretroberts @bill_dur @ivanareds @crete_academy @organicko @sickpencil @ruthlesscreationz @bobbychamberlain.1 @maximillianmorten @sickpencil @organicko @art.work.basketball
