Design Begins for Adamo Drive Mural Project
Tampa, FL February 10, 2012 - Design will begin on the Adamo Drive Mural Project in Ybor City on February 18, 2012. The public-private effort between the City of Tampa, Hillsborough Community College Ybor Campus, and local businesses has been in the planning stage for the last 2 years, but will be completed by June 2012.

The Adamo Drive Mural Project will create a giant mural depicting the culture, heritage, and vitality of Ybor City and Tampa.

A team of 14 HCC student artists led by artist and Hillsborough Community College adjunct instructor Michael Parker, will meet for the first time on Saturday, February 18, 2012 at HCC Ybor Campus. Their immediate challenge is to master techniques for transferring a small scale design into a mural that will ultimately cover a city-block-long side of an industrial building.

In addition to the students, community members are invited to join the free workshops in painting and drawing and contribute their efforts to the final image.

Once the mechanics are mastered, students and community members will begin the design process. Ideas for the mural will come from those who live in the community or are closely associated with the people, events, and images that tell the Ybor City and Tampa story.

Anyone wanting to participate in either design or production workshops should contact Michael Parker at (813) 846-2000 or email him at ybormuralproject@gmail.com.
