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.

Washable chalk in hand, 11 slabs of black basal stone allow students to fill the labyrinth with their own public art.
