An old friend returned to the studio for a much needed make-over ... the Fish from the Braddock Pool has enjoyed its 23 year vigil, but the harshness of pool-side living has taken its toll.
The Fish, originally installed in 1990, is a functional work of art serving as a water filler for the pool. Valves in the pump house send water to the Fish to spit into the pool. Its restoration included some reconstruction work and modifications to the base to better integrate into the new edging.
Removed from the pool deck in the autumn of 2013, the Fish returned on-time for duty for the 2014 Memorial Day Opening. Cast in white sand and Portland cement, the fish will continue to be steadfast member of the Braddock Pool's rich history.
