Description

Michele Martinez's large scale glazed ceramic tile murals on the pool house façade honor the park's namesake, Helen Keller. This panel features tiles made by local youth during a workshop led by the artist.  One panel shows a group of children basking in the sun alongside a rippling pooll. The murals are accompanied by quotes from Helen Keller, presented in English, Spanish and Braille.
