Loretta Ingraham Recreation Center


artist/designer: Monica Naugle, Plant City, Fl

architect: Harvard, Jolly, Cleese and Toppe St. Petersburg , FL

This project was part of the City of Tampa Art in Public Places program. The neighborhoods served by this recreation center have a very strong neighborhood association. The artist, Monica Naugle, is primarily a sculptor, weaving metal cables in this piece. She has woven the stories of the neighborhoodsÂ’ triumph into a timeline with the two communitiesÂ’ maps superimposed on twin suns. The neighborhoods are hemmed in by commercial development, thus the fringe of buildings at the perimeter. Terrazzo was the only medium to achieve a design of this complexity.
