Gil Family Art Shoes

If you know the Gil-Silva family, then you know their love of basketball through their nonprofit Gil Basketball Academy. During the pandemic, they’ve taken that love and paired it with their love of art, hand painting old basketball shoes they have around in the house, with dad Jose Gil passing on techniques he learned as an applied arts major at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. The shoes are on display (virtually) at the Monterey Museum of Art from March 19-May 23.
