The Art Center Renovation
About this project
The Old Hyde Park Art Center is Tampa Regional Artists’ gallery and workshop space. TRA has been renovating and landscaping the exterior of this turn of the century public building (originally a one room school house) to make it more of an asset to the community, and now wants to update the interior. The building is used for monthly exhibits and daily art classes for all ages — from children to the elderly. The pegboard wall system that we use to hang our monthly exhibits was installed in the 1980s and is starting to deteriorate. We want to make the interior more functional. The new interior will better showcase art, and attract even more visitors to the Center, enhancing the building as a community resource. The project costs include the new hanging system, replacement of wall siding and painting. The project will be done the last week of July 2015.
