Description

In 2007, Garin Baker created two murals for the Turkey Thicket Recreation Center. The first, entitled “Then and Now,” depicts the history of Turkey Thicket. Baker stated that it represents “a simple story of mothers banding together demonstrating community spirit and determination to create a safe recreational environment for their children and community.” The second, entitled “Swimming Pool,” depicts several children and adults in their expressed moments of exuberance and joy as they play in the facility’s swimming pool. Both murals portray the ability of the recreation center to band the community together.
