The mural "Different Strokes" is applied to a 120' wall adjacent to a public swimming pool at Mary Bethune Park. The swimming motif echoes the diversity of the community and the complexity of the relationship between man and water. In a 1-foot by 2-foot visual module, the swimming motif repeats to infinity, consisting of six color motifs utilizing the same tile pattern.
