Leap In To
Mark La Mair, 1999, aluminum
Oakland Family Aquatic Center, 1900 Blueridge Road
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.
