TAMPA Fla. – Mayor Jane Castor launched a Art on The Block initiative which started Saturday morning.

The mural will be painted at the intersection of Cass Street and Jefferson Street. City-commissioned artists will produce new downtown, West Tampa, East Tampa, Tampa Heights, and Westshore street murals with a spirit of unity and inclusiveness.  The artists are supported by numerous local organizations, from the Westshore Alliance and the Tampa Downtown Partnership to the Tampa LGBT Chamber and Black Lives Matter. 

A rendering of the mural was posted by Mergeculture on Facebook yesterday.
