Project Overview

Basketball Court Panels - Pierotti Park

The imagery captures moments of everyday life in the surrounding Raleigh community and celebrates this predominately African-American neighborhood.

Memphis artist Anthony D. Lee created outdoor enhancements for players and spectators at the basketball court in Pierotti Park. He is known for his brightly colored imagery. The color scheme of the digitally enhanced images matches the colorful seat covers in yellow, red and magenta. The imagery captures moments of everyday life in the surrounding Raleigh community and celebrates this predominately African-American neighborhood. The photos are printed on vinyl and mounted on irregularly shaped, trapezoid steel panels that are up to eight feet high and two-and-a-half feet wide. They provide shade in the seating area.
