WUSF is infusing a little fun in our news with an occasional series called “Art Populi.” The aim is to shine a light on Tampa Bay's rich cultural landscape-- and offer a perhaps welcome diversion from the political stories that can dominate during election season.

Our debut collection of stories will focus on public art.  We’ll be reporting on city murals, abandoned art, public art galleries and more.

For our first story-- we traveled to a place in Pinellas County known as "Whimzeyland."

Have you ever walked down a street  in an eclectic neighborhood, a college campus or in the heart of a city's downtown and seen something that caught your eye? Perhaps it was a piece of public art.

In a few weeks, WUSF News is starting an occasional series called “Art Populi.” We’ll be reporting from counties around the Tampa Bay area on whimsical houses, public art galleries, abandoned art, city murals and more.
