Description

In conjunction with the 2008 renovation of the pool house, pool deck, equipment room and senior building at Lennox Park in South Los Angeles, artist Wayne Healy created a hand-painted glazed ceramic tile mural for the front entrance of the pool house. The vibrantly colored and dynamically composed artwork displays the activities of the facility and the spirit of the community.
