Ama the mermaid stands before the point where the waters of Whitcomb and Spring bayous meet. The city of Tarpon Springs' Public Art Committee, through a partnership with the international company Koh-I-Noor, has installed the bronze mermaid sculpture created by French artist Amaryllis Bataille. As part of the Amaryllis Art for Charity program, the sculpture will stand for three years during which time the work may be purchased by the city, an individual or business, or auctioned. When sold or auctioned, one-third of the profits will be donated to a local charitable organization approved by the committee and Koh-I-Noor.See Things to Do, Page 8.
