The satellite dishes in Duke University's Satellite Park were used by its Tel Com department in the 90s. However, the Internet soon rendered them useless and they sat unused for nearly twenty years. Faced with the expensive task of tearing them down and hauling them off to the junkyard, Duke decided to team up with Mural Durham and create a satellite park for the community. They chose Sarahlaine Calva, Gina Elizabeth Franco, George Mitchell & HappyMess, Rachel Goodwin, Bethany Bash, Cornelio Campos, Julienne Alexander, and J. Massullo to paint murals on the eight satellite dishes and the result is a truly cool and unique public art park.
