Vinoy Wall Mural
I am very happy to have gotten great publicity this week from the Tampa Bay Times newspaper. Quite a big spread too as it was the whole page wide and over a third high.
Here's what the copy said.
"Ready to make his mark on history"
Artist Robert Schott, above, inspects some of the original 1925 plaster ornamentation Tuesday around the murals that he and fellow artist Tom Stovall are working to restore at the Renaissance Vinoy Resort & Golf Club in St. Petersburg. Schott, left, is rising to the challenge to measure the artwork for the restoration project. The Vinoy has uncovered four murals on the north and south end of Marchand's main dining room. The artists are hoping to restore the works before the resort's 20th anniversary of its reopening next month.
