Description

Robin Strayhorn’s tile mural, Aquatic Endeavors, at the entrance of Enterprise Park Pool, has images of children engaging in water sports. The colorful tiles have been sandblasted to add dimension and create relief. A variety of smaller blue tiles accentuate the water theme in the artwork.  The mural continues inside the building over the entryway to the women’s locker room.
