Last Friday, Tampa General Hospital unveiled a new mural on its exterior, thanks to Valspar’s Be Bright campaign. The purpose of the new painting is to uplift the spirits of those who enter the hospital. Valspar launched this campaign in 2022 in order to encourage hope in designated communities across the United States.
Local Tampa artist JP Parra was chosen by Valspar to create the mural for their 2022 campaign. The paint company shared that their choice was based on Parra’s bright style which embodies the essence of their initiative.
“At the heart of it, Valspar’s Be Bright campaign is about realizing what the spirit of togetherness can do for people and their communities during tough times,” said Valspar Brand Manager, Sara Hackney in a press release. “The Tampa Bay area, and specifically Tampa General Hospital, is so deserving of this mural, and we cannot wait to see the brightness and inspiration it brings to the people here.”
