An Immigrant Family: Ybor City and its Heritage

An immigrant family, mother, father, and their son and daughter, are depicted newly arrived in Ybor City, now a part of Tampa. Simply named Immigrant Statue, it was designed by artist Anthony Cardoso and sculpted by Steve Dickey. It was dedicated in Ybor City's Centennial Park in 1992.

The inscription reads: To those courageous men and women who came to this country in search of personal freedom, economic opportunity and a future of hope for their families.
