Mural project at LCCS’s family visit playground area

By La Prensa Staff


TOLEDO, July 8, 2019: A team of artists and art students will transform the blank concrete walls that frame the Lucas County Children Services (LCCS) outdoor Family Visits playground area—located at 705 Adams St.—by painting a series of murals.


This group of artists has been responsible for many of the colorful displays along Broadway in Toledo’s Old South End neighborhood.


Bowling Green State University (BGSU) senior art lecturer Gordon Ricketts will lead art students from Bowling Green State University, with help from Toledo artist Yusuf Lateef and Sofia Quintero Art and Cultural Center (SQACC) art director Lorenzo Flores, himself an LCCS foster/adoptive parent.


Some teens involved with LCCS who are interested in art will participate in the project and be mentored by the BGSU students.

The art murals will be the first step in what is anticipated to be a comprehensive playground renovation project using community in-kind contributions, grants, and other donations to replace 25-year-old play equipment that has outlived its useful life. The goal is to replace it with an all-inclusive, accessible playground with a bonded rubber surface. LCCS’ nonprofit auxiliary, Friends of Lucas County Children Services, is leading a fundraising effort for this project.
