The Aquarium" is a mural on a water tank made to look like an aquarium. (2 stories tall)
The Street art Revolution team took inspiration from the architectural design of the water tank. We decided to paint the water tank like an Aquarium. The design shows off the wonderful aquatic treasures of the area.
The goals of the project was to work with the rebranding efforts of the Marina. Moreover, creating an environment that is welcoming to both the local community and visitors . : Adding public art to the marina shows the deep commitment the City of Riviera Beach's CRA has for the arts. With public art projects such as the Calypso project, Rivera Beach is continuing its forward direction as a destination of choice for the marine enthusiast ."
"The Aquarium" (2 stories tall) The piece highlights suggestions from the community of aquatic life such as sea turtles, manatees, crabs, lobsters, starfishes stingrays and tropical fish. A prominent feature of the mural is the 'Retro Diver' which reflects the fact that Riviera Beach is one of the top destinations for diving in the United States. The image of the diver honors Naval Veterans of Riviera Beach. Another feature in the design of the tank is the Rolls-Royce that is an artificial Reef in the Intercoastal Waterway. The Rolls Royce owner sank the car in 1985 in order to encourage people to create artificial reefs. The Rolls-Royce today is 1 of 160 artificial reefs in the Intercoastal Waterway.
