Corner of Glen Ridge and Inverness Avenues in Temple Terrace
Saturday, May 18, 2019
The Temple Terrace Arts Council is taking their message about the importance of public art to the streets. Literally. On Saturday, May 18, beginning at 10 a.m., the Arts Council and City leadership, along with resident volunteers will assist with the City’s first intersection art project at the corner of Glen Ridge and Inverness Avenues. The design, conceived by artist Ameena Khan, depicts the City’s iconic Temple orange and pays homage to the beautiful vistas afforded by the Hillsborough River.
The site for the artwork is in the heart of the City, at a three-way intersection under a canopy of oak trees located near Bonnie Brae Park. The intersection will be closed to traffic from the evening of May 17 through Monday, May 20. Khan will outline her design just after sunrise on Saturday and the public is invited to help paint beginning at 10 a.m. Special paint, brushes and smocks will be provided as well as water and other refreshments.
