The McCarren Park Pool Bathhouse unveils its Percent for Art Artwork Installation, Double Sun, with the opening of the pool this summer. Artist, Mary Temple began work on this project immediately after the 2016 swimming season, during evening hours over approximately fourteen evenings. The two highly visible troupe l’oeil illusions were hand-painted using hand-mixed latex paints, tinted lighter than the base color. The tree-branch murals that make up the installation, Double Sun, will welcome visitors as they move beneath the archways.
The McCarren Park Pool Bathhouse is located at 776 Lorimer Street, between Bayard Street and Driggs Avenue in Brooklyn.
