Somebody Please Paint These Damn Ticket Booths! [Boardwalk Makeover]

Rumor has it, several years ago the city was all set to paint these ticket booths a nicer color, but one cranky, anti-fun person raised their voice and it was put on hold.  Painting these ticket booths would be a really inexpensive way to beautify our boardwalk. I know the colors I picked in my images aren’t ideal, but you get the idea.

Who else thinks these babies should be painted? (The garbage gives these images a lovely touch, doesn’t it?)

    We have so many artistic residents of Long Beach would be great to see them adopt a booth and grace us with there beautiful artwork (similar to the painted cows, horses in Manhattan of years ago).

    It’s shabby chic!

  • Jess

    yes please !

    Do something…if it takes five LB city workers to nail one board I am sure they could find the time to paint one of these huts. ( then again it may require 10 city workers to paint each booth)

    John on the screw the board group make paint the hut day I’ll bring a can of paint

    we’ll need a catchy rallying cry.

    only things I’m able to come up with at the moment aren’t suitable for public consumption.

    Could be a nice Community Service project for high school students.

    Anyone want to do a late night booth painting? I have some paint and brushes.

  • Allison

    I’m in.. What color?

  • Wolfman

    I agree with KCE. Let the artists paint the booths. I’m sure they would love to donate their time to have their works so visible and beautify our city.

    I’m sure some local artists would love to paint the ticket booths. Maybe do a photography wrap on a few too! I think it would look great and be an attraction to the city. What better artistic venue for a beach town?

    Hey folks, I am making some progress on this… give me a day or two and I will post an update. The City LOVES this idea.

    Oh but there will be one who doesn’t and that will be that… Hopefully Jack will be stronger than Theofan

  • allisonb

    I’m thinking neon pink with big polka dots! Or screaming red and ladybug dots. RAINBOW!

    Or just purple.

  • allisonb

    Please don’t pick any local artist(s) at random…have you seen some of the artwork on the plaza?!?! Some of it has no pulse!!

    Artists submit proposals, manager picks the winner alongside some advice from a voting public via the website. Do this once a year. Allow artists from outside Long Beach for diversity?

    still waiting for more info….. tick tick tick.
