The Spheres at MacArthur Park


Portraits of Hope has received official approval to pursue an unprecedented public art and civic initiative that will involve more than 3,500 - 7,000 children and adults in an amazing visual makeover and revitalization of iconic MacArthur Park.The project will culminate in the installation and exhibition of a one-of-a-kind floating artwork -- encompassing hand-painted inflatable spheres -- for and on the surface of the MacArthur Park Lake. The huge floating spheres painted in brightly colored floral and aquatic designs will range in size from 4 - 6 ft. in diameter making for fantastic vistas at the park.Traditional to our projects, many hospitals, schools, social service and community groups will participate and the project will incorporate POH's integrated themes of public art, civic education, community engagement, creative therapy, and teamwork. The programmatic phase will precede the four-week exhibition. Learn more at
