The Robert F. Kennedy Community Schools on Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles is home to a permanent public art installation. Named "Keeley's Garden, Labyrinth 1," it was designed by Lynn Goodpasture, who specializes in making large-scale art for public spaces.

Centrally located at the base of an amphitheater, the 690 square foot labyrinth is a reminder of the location's iconic history. Prior to being demolished, the Ambassador Hotel was the site of the Cocoanut Grove nightclub and Robert F. Kennedy's 1968 assassination.
The geometric labyrinth is paved with brightly colored French encaustic tiles whose design resembles those found in the Ambassador Hotel.
Washable chalk in hand, 11 slabs of black basal stone allow students to fill the labyrinth with their own public art.
Located on a playground shared by three elementary schools, kinesthetic learners express their creativity during recess.
