Colorfully Painted Spheres Dot the MacArthur Park Landscape

Artistic Inspiration

More than 2,500 brightly colored spheres are floating in MacArthur Park's pond in Los Angeles, CA, over the next few weeks as part of an art installation called "Portraits of Hope." Thousands of volunteers came together this month to complete the monumental painting project, creating a beautiful and very colorful array of spheres for viewing. At the end of the installation, the spheres will be divided and sent to various hospitals and women's shelters to bright up each area. For more information, visit
