Help Create New Art For Water Tower in South Hillsborough

The water tower on US 41 in Apollo Beach is getting a facelift!

We have exciting news!  The water tower on US 41 in Apollo Beach is getting a facelift.  Local Artist Michael Parker has been selected to lead the creation of a new design.  In the coming months, Michael and The South Shore Chamber of Commerce will be hosting a series of public workshops aimed at forming a design that represents our unique community.  This is an exciting opportunity to come together and increase the power of one of our local landmarks.  The Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners is providing the art for the South Shore Water Tower, through their Public Art Program.

You can participate in the design process!  If you cannot attend the workshops, there is also an online survey to accept your ideas and input.

Michael Parker will lead participants through the process of collaborating on a public art design.
