EK Davis Mural

The Des Moines Parks and Recreation Department will work with local artist and mentor Jill Wells to create a one-of-a-kind piece of art for the basketball courts at Evelyn K Davis Park as a court mural. The mural will be on the playing surfaces of the two renovated courts and the existing half-court. The project team will also work with the nationally known organization Project Backboard, which has vast international experience in implementing court murals. Public input will help shape the artwork to reflect the community's spirit and create something truly meaningful and unique!
