The Harborwalk Mural Project
This mural will be painted on the retaining wall under the US 41 southbound bridge along the Punta Gorda Harborwalk. This walkway is used by more than 1000 walkers and bicyclists every day (2000 in season). It will capture our Charlotte Harbor marine life, past and present.
