Art Installation Project: Trying to bring color back to Berlin basketball courts

BERLIN, Md.- One local man has a vision to transform basketball courts and bring them back to life in Berlin.

Adrian Bowen wants to repaint the basketball courts at the Dr. William Henry Park on Flower Street to make them more inviting.

Bowen said he grew up playing basketball there and over the years the courts have changed.

So, now he wants to bring some excitement back to the park with the help of the community.

He plans to show the Mayor and Council his plans soon to hopefully get them approved.

“I just want to give back to the park that pretty much gave me the opportunity and a place to go to to work on my skills,” Adrian Bowen, a project leader, said. “It’s just bringing the community together you know a lot more and also you know the youth is the main focus.”

Bowen said this project will not only help bring the community out to paint, but also give kids the opportunity to get service hours if they need them for graduation.
There is also a GoFundMe page up to get the ball rolling on this project, you can click here to donate.
