PROJECT: THE DEEP EDDY MURAL
2007 - 2012
In 2011, Wanda Montemayor and a team including teachers, art therapists and students from all over Austin completed a hand made 1200 square foot mosaic mural at historic Deep Eddy pool. Integrating art therapy with local workshops, Wanda and her team spent nearly four years planning, developing and creating each of the countless individual tiles that would become part of the colossal work of art.
The resulting documentary, Mosaic: The Deep Eddy Mural takes us on a journey from inception through dedication and all the effort and love it took to make it happen in between. Viewers get a peek behind the curtain to understand what it takes to create of a truly monumental work of art, hardships and laughter included.
Initially running on KLRU in Austin, TX, the program was picked up for distribution and is now playing across the country on PBS stations. Check your local station for listings and showtimes!
