Painting to Music and Dance: West Tampa mural is bright and alive!

This mural wraps around two sides of an older brick building that was probably at one time a retail store in this West Tampa neighborhood. My guess is that students of a local school painted it and added classical columns and a stairway against a hillside...something they did not take from their flat Florida surroundings. From the left, musicians play the cello and bass as dancers perform in the middle of the mural. An older, bearded gentleman, wearing a jaunty French beret, paints at his easel on the right. His subject? The dancers.


  1. Great post! This mural I really like...the subjects, the colors ... it's dynamic and fun.

    You do have a lot of murals in Tampa!

  2. It's beautiful Frank. I love those colors!

  3. Isn't it amazing how many murals there are now? They are such an easy way to brighten up a building.
