Pinellas Trail ArtWorks

Pinellas Trail ArtWorks is a partnership between Creative Pinellas and Pinellas County Public Works, with a goal to defeat graffiti and foster community beautification projects along the Pinellas Trail. The goal is to create appealing spaces, build excitement and interest in the trail and recognize the pride residents have in their community while discouraging the types of graffiti that can detract from the enjoyment of the space.

The artist were selected through a panel process that included Creative Pinellas, Pinellas County Public Works, a Pinellas County based artist, curator and representative from the Tarpon Springs and Palm Harbor communities.  The designs went through the formal County review process and the project was approved by FDOT.

This is the 3rd project completed as part of this partnership, with 7 murals located throughout Pinellas County to help reduce graffiti, saving time and money and also ensuring, in this case, that people who use the trail will have the best possible experience.

Community Survey

Community surveys were part of the process from the beginning of the Pinellas Trail Mural Project and the results were shared with the artists as they conceived their designs for the project.  Here are the results and insight about having murals on the trail can be viewed here: Pinellas Trail Tunnel Community Survey

PRESS ABOUT the Pinellas Trail Mural Project

Four artists have been commissioned by Creative Pinellas and Pinellas County to paint four Florida-themed murals at two overpasses along the Pinellas Trail. One in Palm Harbor and one in Tarpon Springs.


Parts of the Pinellas Trail are getting a much-needed facelift, thanks to a county program. The quest to beautify the trail is what’s right with Tampa Bay.

Recipients have been selected for this grant. Congratulations!
