Molly Dilworth - Brooklyn, NY
— Smoky Hill River Festival & Salina Art Center 2012 —Brooklyn-based artist, Molly Dilworth, combined traditional European and Afro-Caribbean patterns for Oakdale/Carver pool. Integrating the histories of Salina's summer pastime activity - swimming - the large 1920's municipal pool (more recently an ice skating rink and shallow pond) is painted with two patterns. The framing design is derived from Pennsylvania Dutch barn decorations and English-Irish quilt designs - reflecting the population allowed to swim at Oakdale. The inset design - sourced from Central African baskets, beadwork, and Gee's Bend quilt patterns - demarcates the size (40ft by 60ft) of the Carver Pool which opened in 1948 as a blacks-only pool during Salina's days of segregation. This work will be visible through virtual maps such as Google Earth, marking a visual history of Salina from an aerial perspective.
