— Nothing like a crisis to trigger a renaissance, and at least as far as public art goes, Florence is seeing one. After Dope Art Initiative's decorating an old Florence motel on East Palmetto Street and a community effort to paint a Black Lives Matter street mural on Barnes Street, several Florence basketball courts are about to get some tender loving and artistic care. "I played here every day when I was a kid," said Florence radio personality Buddah Ratt.

We all decided to get together to bring it to Florence. "When COVID-19 hit, the city took down the basketball nets and covered the rims — all but ending pickup basketball games on city courts. "Because of COVID, the basketball courts are closed, so this is the perfect time for us to get out and paint," Davis said. Toward that end, the Canvas the Courts project was born to beautify the courts at Northwest Park.
