Latest installment of Urban Art Attack to be unveiled Sunday

SEMINOLE HEIGHTS

Rustic Steel Creations founder Dominique Martinez plans to bring out his 20-foot-tall dragon, a hockey player and a little something new for the Urban Art Attack.

Martinez's larger-than-life sculptures will sit along Nebraska Avenue for a month as an exhibit of the public art program that showcases local talent in Seminole Heights. Rustic Steel Creations moved to the neighborhood in June, from its former home in the Channel District. He and 12 fabricators were busy this week in the new space, building a 7 1/2-foot-tall Spartan, decorative gates for a home on Davis Islands and doors for the Epicurean Hotel, set to open on Howard Avenue in December.

He has just a few days to "get creative and make something cool," he said, for the final piece.

His urban exhibits will be unveiled Sunday, the day of the area's largest fundraising event, Taste of the Heights. The tour is from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. leading participants to local spots throughout the neighborhood. Tickets are available online for $25 at taste-of-the-heights.com.
