NORMAN — After being rained out in September, the Blake Baldwin Skate Park finally will receive paint touch-ups.

Volunteers and artists will be working on the artwork at the skate park for most of the day Sunday. Joshua Boydston, with the Norman Arts Council, said volunteers will begin to primer the artwork as early as 9 a.m. The original artists will be there around 2 or 3 p.m. to add their “artistic touches,” he said.

“They will be going through and refreshing all the painting,” Boydston said.

The skate park was originally painted as part of a project called CRE8nSK8. Contemporary street art done graffiti-style decorates the skate ramps and outer walls of the Blake Baldwin Skate Park, which is at the northeast corner of Andrews Park, 201 W. Daws St.

Daily wear and tear on the paintings brought about the paint refreshment project. None of the art work is obscene, religious or political.
