The Canoe Bench
Description: Green ARTery Bench - "The Canoe Bench," located at Ignacio Haya Linear Park, Tampa, Florida, overlooks a large flat area of the Hillsborough River. This area is often used by canoe and kayakers as a put-in spot. The imagery was inspired by snorkeling, as if the canoe is filled up with ocean creatures, spiral shells, and sea urchins, with mother-of-pearl enhancing the terrazzo matrix. This project was created with the support of Tampa Arts Council, Seminole Heights Neighborhood Association, The Green ARTery, and in collaboration with Steward Mellon Terrazzo Co.
