Local Artists Partner with the City of Pinellas Park to Raise Awareness about
Stormwater Pollution

PINELLAS PARK -The City of Pinellas Park's Community Redevelopment Agency and
the City's Public Works Department recently did a call to artists asking for
assistance with raising awareness about stormwater pollution through a public
art campaign.

The call was answered, and five local artists have been selected to
participate in painting murals on storm drains in the City Center area. The
murals will exemplify stormwater protection through the theme "Only Rain Down
the Drain".

The City would like to congratulate Cyrus Frioli, Monica Swartley, Jennifer
Hartman, Taylah Sevier, and Zoe Perez as the artists selected for this
project! The project is expected to be complete by June 30th.

"We're super excited about the opportunity to creatively send an important
public service message to our residents about this issue," said Laura Canary,
CRA Manager for the City of Pinellas Park. "We are equally excited to have
some very talented local artists participate and can't wait to see the
finished product," concluded Canary.
