Indian Rocks Beach’s Art Center has undergone a transformation over the past several months (see above - before and after our “Exterior Beautification). With a rejuvenated board, an action plan prepared by a volunteer management consultant, and a re-charged gift shop, the art center is reaching new highs. The center provided a record number of adult classes this year, and reinstituted kids’ camp. And importantly, thanks to an anonymous donor, they were able to repair the exterior stucco that was cracked and falling off the building.
The work principally consisted of repair and replacement of the deteriorated substrate framing along with new and repaired stucco. Dynamic Property Services, a local construction firm, performed the work. The result was a new, waterproof exterior, while maintaining the well-known painted wave. The front lawns were regraded, landscaped, and new gutters were added to solve the lobby’s flooding problems.
Marjorie Meier-Belt, President of the Art Center commented, “You could say we’re really making waves, aren’t we? The exterior captures our beach environment with a beautifully updated color palette.”
