Recognizing the swimming pool as the quintessential symbol of summer fun, La Mair has his colorful figures diving into an implied pool. La Mair, a resident of Springfield, Missouri, designed the sculptures to be playful and energetic with the hope that they become a symbol of the renovated pool. The sculptures were commissioned as a city Percent for Art project.
