Description:  Robin Strayhorn’s playful tile mural, at the entrance of Enterprise Park Pool, depicts images of children engaging in water sports. Colorful glazed images of youthful figures were sandblasted to add dimension and create relief on forty 12” x 12” tiles. Also included are a variety of smaller blue tiles which accentuate the water themed artwork. The mural continues into the interior over the entryway to the women’s locker room.
