There are murals on several of the New Port Richey downtown buildings which are fun to explore. Attractive custom wall murals brighten buildings, add historical interest, and create the perfect opportunity for selfies too. My favorite is the one at the corner of Main and Bank Street, entitled, “A 1920’s Day on the Pithlachascotee River,” or “Faces” by Keith Goodson. It uses local people’s faces on the 1920’s characters. That was my first post on a local mural. That mural greets me everytime I drive into downtown New Port Richey on Main Street and cross over the bridge.Read More
Little Corona’s Cigar Lounge
6324 Grand Blvd, New Port Richey, FL 34652
Today I’m sharing another mural in New Port Richey, Florida. It is an alligator on the side wall of Little Corona’s Cigar Lounge. No, I haven’t gone inside. I’m not a smoker and try to avoid tobacco smoke. The lounge wasn’t even open at 10 AM when I took photos on the outside. I have not been able to find out the name of the artist who painted the mural but it is a fun painting. It is located on Grand Avenue one block north of Main Street. Below is the front entrance to the lounge.
Aloha Hawaiian Barbecue
5903 Seminole Blvd
Seminole, FL 33772
This restaurant is mostly to go with great Hawaiian dishes. Today we’ll visit to see the mural on one wall. The tropical flowers look right at home in semi-tropical central Florida. Seminole is in Hillsboro County (greater Tampa area).
New Port Richy, Florida is a suburban town on the west coast of Florida NW of Tampa
I live in central Florida in Pasco County northwest of Tampa. Today I’m sharing a beautiful mural in New Port Richey. There are murals on several of the downtown buildings, and they are fun to explore. My favorite is the one at the corner of Main and Bank Street, entitled, “A 1920’s Day on the Pithlachascotee River,” by Keith Goodson, because it uses local people’s faces on the 1920’s characters. The building is on the right in the photo below. The mural starts with signs on the left side facing Main Street. The mural wraps around the health dept. building and down the sidewalk of Bank Street on the right.
The Detroit Institute of Arts, known affectionately as the DIA, is a world renowned art museum. Founded by prominent Detroit citizens in 1885, the museum opened on September 1, 1888 in a building on Jefferson Avenue. In 1927 the museum moved to its current location on Woodward Avenue, just north of Warren Street. The Beaux-Arts building, designed by Paul Cret, was immediately referred to as the “temple of art.” Two wings were added in the 1960’s and 1970’s, and a major renovation and expansion that began in 1999 was completed in 2007.
