NOVEL Riverwalk is also home to Tampa’s newest pieces of public art, the 27-foot ‘Charley’ sculpture depicting a boat hull in tribute to Tampa Bay-native Charley Morgan and the illuminated polychrome aluminum sculpture, ‘River Shadow,’ that depicts fluid forms that roll across the top of the community. Both pieces were designed by local artist Mark Aeling of MGA Sculpture Studio in St. Petersburg.
The ‘Charley’ was inspired by a racing yacht called ‘Heritage’ that was designed and built by Morgan, proprietor of Morgan yachts, for the America’s Cup in 1970.
‘River Shadow’ was created with 155 individual glowing pieces that appear to tumble down between the buildings along the parking structure surface.
A third piece, our ‘Riverwalk Memories’ mural was created by Michelle Sawyer and Tony Krol, a husband and wife team, working in Tampa Florida under the moniker Illsol. Michelle and Tony incorporated the land’s history, references to the Riverwalk and the recurring theme of water that can be seen throughout Novel Riverwalk. Triangles on the mural point in the direction of the Riverwalk and reference nautical flags while the central image of an anchor represents the idea of “being anchored at home”. Oranges pay tribute to the land Novel Riverwalk was built on, which was once used for orange, peach and guava groves owned by the Taylors (whom the bridge connecting the west and east banks is named after, Fortune Taylor). Overall, the mural’s design represents the creation of memories through history, activity and movement.
