Description

In 2007, the DCCAH, in partnership with the Department of Parks and Recreation, commissioned local artist Walter Kravitz to design paintings on the glass windows inside the King Greenleaf Recreation Center. Kravitz, who also designed artwork for the Hillcrest Recreation Center, stated his enthusiasm in working on recreation center artwork: “Recreation centers are a stabilizing factor in communities. When I was growing up in Chicago, our recreation center was an answer to the street.” Thus, the project hit close to home for Kravitz. He created colorful, lively images of men, women, seniors, youth, and some disabled participating in various activities and sports that take place at the center.

The paintings create a welcoming and vibrant environment and act as one of several projects commissioned by the DCCAH with the goal of revitalizing D.C.’s recreation facilities.
