This semester, our Summer NICKterns took on what may have been the largest intern mural project to date. Our NICKterns partnered with the mega-talented Peter Bennett, Art Director on SpongeBob SquarePants, to create a SpongeBob-themed mural at County USC Hospital in Downtown Los Angeles. Using Peter’s design, the NICKterns aimed to create an underwater oasis for the playroom area in the hospital’s Pediatric Inpatient Unit. In just three short days, the interns were able to create a floor-to-ceiling rendition of Bikini Bottom for the hospital’s patients to enjoy themselves in.
This semester’s mural project was led by NICKterns Lindsay Anderson (Community Efforts), Michael Castellon (Social Media), Alexis Gossom (Franchise Properties), and Shaina Wottitz (Nick Jr. Development). A special shoutout to former NICKterns Emma Ayau (Production Coordinator, Glitch Techs) and Stephanie Pecina (Production Coordinator, Shimmer and Shine) for lending their artistic talents to help make the project such a success!
