Artists Explore a New Canvas: Tennis Courts

Artists Explore a New Canvas: Tennis Courts

While the hairstyles and fashion trends of tennis players have dramatically evolved over the years, the courts themselves have mostly stayed the same. For over a century, they have been monochrome, with clean white lines delineating precisely measured boxes; the uniformity of each court is essential to facilitating the creativity that happens on it.

But this year, a few artists have disrupted this orderliness in five cities: Miami, Los Angeles, Chicago, Cincinnati and New York. At the court in Miami, the center of the net seems to emit bold rays that form giant multicolor hearts. In Chicago, players run between leaflike shapes of varying shades of green. And in Brooklyn, courts in Highland Park reopened on Saturday filled with blistering comic-book lettering reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein.

 

This project, “Art Courts,” was spearheaded by the United States Tennis Association as part of a 50th anniversary celebration of the U.S. Open. Organizers hope to inject a dash of enthusiasm and color into community tennis courts in underserved neighborhoods — as well as enliven a sport that, to some, possesses a reputation for stuffiness and adherence to rules.

The program was funded by Chase as part of a $500,000 effort to support youth tennis. Five artists were commissioned to create designs for newly rehabilitated courts that are used by the public and for youth instruction, including Justus Roe of Chicago; KiiK Create, a duo in Miami (Manoela del Pilar Madera Nadal and David Gray Edgerton); and Charlie Edmistonof Los Angeles.
