TARPON SPRINGS — History is repeating itself in the historic city of Tarpon Springs.
In the recently renovated Tarpon Springs Cultural Center — which was built in 1915 as the city’sfirst City Hall — artist Elizabeth Indianos has re-created a mural depicting the history of the city, from the 1500s when Spanish conquistadors arrived on Florida’s shores right up to references to present day.
In 1975, while Indianos was the artist in residence for the City of Tarpon Springs, she began painting a similar outdoor mural on the corner of Tarpon Avenue and Alt U.S. 19. She’d received a National Endowment for the Arts grant and developed programming including an extensive mural program. After doing research on the city’s history from 1975 to 1979, she and a collective of artists painted The Spirit of This Place as cars whizzed by.
