Outdoor pools have become a politically charged subject in the wake of a white police officer’s treatment of black teens in McKinney, Texas. This weekend, the city of St. Louis' largest outdoor public pool reopened after being closed for over a year.  In a year marked by racial tension throughout the city, many people in attendance at the Marquette Park pool characterized the event as a step in the right direction.

A giant, blinking set of eyes is the latest public art project to grace the south city neighborhood of Carondelet.

The 100 by 30 foot stencil is painted on a corrugated, street-facing wall owned by Southern Metals, at the corner of South Broadway and Holly Hills Avenue.

The mural is the work of Kirkwood street artist Peat Wollaeger, aka Eyez, aka stenSOUL.
