"Mill Race Bridge" by San Antonio artist Diana Kersey uses 24 ceramic panels integrated into the cement guardrails of the bridge. Each unique insert features designs that portray various golf scenes, referencing the historic relevance of the game to Brackenridge Park. The panels depict complex and colorful Art Deco designs in addition to hidden stylized golf balls. The center panel of each insert depicts a motif unique to Brackenridge: the golfer represented on the weather-vane of the clubhouse. The exterior uses a more decorative patterning, using geometric designs that incorporate imagery from the interior, but in a visually repetitive and rhythmic manner. 


"Mill Race Bridge" is made of ceramic panel inserts depicting various golf scenes.  "Mill Race Bridge" utilizes ceramic panels depicting complex and colorful Art Deco designs.
