Urban murals make eye-popping statements

Eye-catching murals that have been brightening scruffy walls for the past few years have made Tampa Bay a very colorful place. Many are in the Central Arts District in St. Petersburg, but a handful can be found in the city's Warehouse District and across the bay scattered around Tampa.

Most adorn the backs of buildings, but many are visible from the street. You just have to know where to look.
