I wanted to thank everyone that contributed to the design phase of the mural project. We received a lot of great information from so many people that helped us to really get to the root of what Ybor City is all about. We really appreciate you taking the time out to help us make this an image that will be an outstanding addition to the neighborhood.
We are now just wrapping up the technical aspects of the image and getting it ready to be applied to the wall. We put a great deal of time and thought into the final outcome while very carefully considering all of the information we received. There are many layers of narrative, identity, and representations of life in Ybor City over time. We are forming a statement that will support and describe the themes and how we arrived at the final image. I will pass that along as soon as it is complete. As far as the image goes, we would like to wait a little bit longer to release it, at least until it begins to take shape on the wall.
If you would like to help paint, then we’d have to show you right away!
We are in the process of getting some scaffolding put up, and as soon as that is complete we can begin painting. This should be within the next couple of weeks.
Feel free to hit me with any questions.
Again, a huge thanks to those that showed up at our open design sessions, took our online Ybor “survey” and took the time to sit down and talk to us about what makes Ybor City special.
See you very soon (with a brush on Adamo Drive)
And the HCC Mural Team
