Deep Eddy Mural Project


This project was commissioned as a community-based tile mural to highlight the colorful history of Deep Eddy Pool, the oldest swimming pool in Texas. Thousands of local teachers, students, non-profits, and volunteers helped to create the mural. The artists used historical photographs and archival materials from the Austin History Center to develop the themes and imagery, including the historic water slide, zip line, and diving horse. The work was funded in part through the Friends of Deep Eddy.
