Nike installs LES basketball court designed by street artist KAWS

Howard Halle

Good news for hoopsters and fans of street art alike: Big foot sneaker giant Nike has installed a basketball court at Stanton Street on the Lower East Side designed by street-art-legend-turned-art-world darling KAWS in collaboration with painter Brian Donnelly (whose recent specialty is images of melting faces made in part with hand sanitizer). The facility consists of two full-size, side-by-side courts, measuring 116 by 80 feet each. The global sportswear retailer partnered with New York City Parks and Recreation Deptartment to install The New York Made: Stanton Street Courts by Kaws as the project is called. The courts are open daily during park hours, so get off that stool at your favorite sports bar and come out to play. The Stanton Street Courts by Kaws will be there for a year. In the meantime, check out these cool pics of the place before it gets covered in rubber sole prints.
