Public Art Showcase

The Naiads

Artist: Glenna Goodacre

Installed: 2019

Graceful and spirited, the Naiads in Greek and Roman Mythology inhabit fresh water providing life to springs, rivers, lakes, and fountains. Goodacre’s Naiads reflect her remarkable ability

to capture expression. Created in 1989, this is the artist’s proof set. Edition 15.

The fountain and base for the Naiads are constructed from stone imported from the Greek Island of Kalymnos in the Dodecanese archipelago.

Ama Tarpon Springs, located at the waterway entrance to Spring Bayou in Craig Park

Artist: Amaryllis Bataille

Ama, Japanese for Woman of the Sea, walks among us on our shores, carrying her tail and scales with her for her inevitable return to the sea.

Through the combined resources of French Artist Amaryllis Batallie and European company Koh i Noor, Ama’s graceful beauty encourages the safeguarding of the ocean by all who behold her.
Ama Tarpon Springs is the 17th of only 100 similar statues around the world and the first on America’s East Coast.
