    Hoops and Hurdles

    Date: 2001
    Material: Acrylic on canvas
    Location: Regional Field House. 480 Sherman Parkway.

    A series of fourteen acrylic on canvas panels were commissioned by the City to complement the area's new regional fieldhouse, a structure attached to the renovated Hillhouse High School. The murals feature images of Hillhouse students participating in sports, specifically in the two center murals which depict, on the left female track athletes, and on the right, basketball players (hence, the title of the work Hoops and Hurdles).

    Hillhouse High School's committment to athletics goes beyond the traditional school spirit approach--one focus of the school is to enable students to pursue careers in sports through the curriculm development in its Sports Academy.

    The artists describes his mural work with the phrase "imaginistic", a term he coined to reflect his realistic style which is touched with a hint of fantasy. From Prospect, Connecticut, Falcone's work can be found throughout New Haven.
