Heather Richardson
on behalf of Todd Ramquist
My name is Heather Richardson and I am a member of the Safety Harbor Art and Music Center Artist Collective. 
I am trying to raise money to  pay artists  to create public art murals in Pinellas County.  All funds raised will cover materials and artist fees.   Although money can be obtained through grants I have found the process to be lenghty and limiting as to where art can be placed  and how the money can be spent. We as a collective want to bring more art to our communites and pay artists for their time.  We have many proposed spots for public art and artists ready to paint!!! We also welcome suggestions for locations to implement this project. 
The explosion of art murals in St Petersburg has inspired us as a collective to get busy and get painting we just need the funding to start!!
Some of these projects will also allow people from the community to participate in creating these murals.
Creating art for our communites has many benefits besides beautification.  Art created with the help of members of the community creates a sense of ownership and pride.  Public art also boosts tourism .
Pleae help us  support the arts in our communites. We
have a mobile painting unit so look for our art bus coming to your community soon!!!!
