On July First the Old Salt and I went to a Christian Biker Rally and motorcycle show being held in the city park of our county seat. The first thing I noticed when we got to the park was that the city pool had been given a frosting of murals since my last visit there several years ago.
I posted these closeup photos in the order they are shown in the above photo. This shot is the first and starts on the left front of the building and each following shot works it's way around to the end of the building on the right.
I spoke with the head of the parks department and learned that they were having such a problem with graffiti that he hoped painting murals on the building would deter the vandals.With the approval of the city counsel, he consulted the art teachers at the local high school. They came up with a contest where students entered a drawing of a scene they would like to paint on the building with a aquatic or fun summer theme.
