Hampton basketball court mural is a colourful burst of public art that connects to the land

October 6, 2021

Hampton Park is the location of artist Sarah Jim's mural for the Outside the Lines: A Court Mural Project of this summer’s We the West Basketball Festival. Sarah Jim (@sarahjimstudio) is an award-winning W̱SÁNEĆ Nation artist from the Tseycum village. Her design incorporates land, sea and sky and depicts their interconnectedness in W̱SÁNEĆ culture.

As Sarah says, public art can really bring people together - and what better way than integrated into a basketball court!

Please have a look at the recently completed video below to hear Sarah discuss the project and get a glimpse of just how colourful and engaging it is!

We are honoured to welcome the mural into Hampton Park and its surrounding community and thank Sarah, the many volunteers and We the West Fest for their efforts, and pleased to have supported this project in Saanich.

Head down to Hampton Park in Saanich to connect with the mural and the community in person!
