New Public Art at The Trio at ENCORE! Tampa

Artist Natalie Blake has created “The Gift of Gathering Remembrances,” the first major installation of public art within downtown Tampa’s ENCORE!® neighborhood. The series of three ceramic tile murals tells a story of the formation, change and growth of a historically rich Tampa neighborhood: Central Avenue.
