RIVIERA BEACH, Fla. - eTradeWire -- In its continuing multifaceted effort to help usher the dramatic transformation of Riviera Beach, the Riviera Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) beautification project "Art Infusion" has been awarded a prestigious honor by the Florida Redevelopment Association (FRA). The CRA received the Cultural Enhancement Citation at the 2019 FRA Annual Conference in Tampa, Florida.

"Art Infusion," is a series of large, striking outdoor wall murals located at key points throughout the CRA District. Riviera Beach Marina Village, for example, is home to a prominent water tank painted to mimic an aquarium that showcases the area's diverse aquatic life including sea turtles, manatees, crabs, lobsters, starfish, stingrays and tropical fish.

The additional recognition by a partner in our mission as prestigious as the FRA makes it that much better."
