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
Crete Academy Founder Hattie Mitchell has shared his thoughts about Nipsey Hussle’s portrait. She said:
“For our kids to look at Nipsey and see to see everything he’s done, what he was able to accomplish and how much he gave back to the community is huge for them…because he looks like them. He grew up where they grew up. He’s the epitome of everything that they want to be and aspire to be“
