      Public Art Unveiling Postponed Due to Weather: Join us Wednesday 7/22/09 at 5 PM with Florida Institute for Community Studies, RCMA and Hillsborough County Parks, Recreation and Conservation for “Wimauma” Public Art at Bethune Park

      Tampa, FL: The summer is to enjoy and be creative. We invite you to the unveiling of our summer public art project done by young residents of Wimauma at Bethune Park at  5809 Edina St, Wimauma, FL 33598. 

      For several weeks this summer, youth from RCMA(Redlands Christian Migrant Association), the parks and Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe Catholic Church met twice a week to do art.  A public art project to enhance the Bethune Park was planned by youth and artists to reflect the strengths of rural Hillsborough County, where Wimauma is situated.  Each letter of W-I-M-A-U-M-A reflects a different theme from the previous classes and depicts:

       

      1)Agriculture (tomatoes, strawberries, plants, greenery)
      2) Family
      3) Love
      4) History (water tower)
      5) Healthy lifestyles (sports)
      6) Environment (water, fish, dogs, etc.)

      This project, directed by Venezuelan-born artist Joanne Osborn, was funded by Prodigy Cultural Arts Program, University Area Community Development Corporation, FL Department of Juvenile Justice, Bay Area Youth Services and the University of South Florida.

      The mission of the Florida Institute for Community Studies (FICS) is to partner with communities to help them achieve their goals through research, service, education and training.  For more information, please contact FICS at 813.249.8100 or email Alayne@....
