Description:  The City of Tampa’s Art Programs Division partnered with the Westshore Alliance in commissioning a gateway that welcomes motorists arriving to Tampa from West Hillsborough County, Tampa International Airport, and Pinellas County. The gateway, titled, Kinetic Ring, sits 24’ tall, just southwest of Westshore Plaza. Also on this site is the home to a memorial listing names of Hillsborough County veterans who died in World War I. Artist Catherine Woods designed Kinetic Ring to reflect the vibe of Westshore: colorful, lively and active. The 24’ sculpture features four C-shaped glass panels that form a windmill, mounted on a powder coated steel frame designed and fabricated to MGA Sculpture Studio. The shape of the glass suggests a kinetic appearance, and is designed for a drive-by experience. The glass is painted and etched with photographic images taken from the area.
