Artist Ya La'ford, whose work seems to be everywhere lately, has designed a new labyrinth-shaped public art piece for Tampa's West River redevelopment that focuses on the "ancient form of walking meditation."

Called "Boulevard Flow," the center of the piece is a raised 10-foot sphere made of aluminum laser-cut panels arranged in a geometrical maze, representing the movement of people, the oak canopies and the flow of the nearby Hillsborough River.

  • Surrounding the sphere is a landscaped labyrinth the artist hopes "becomes a reflective and pleasant space to enjoy a positive relationship with the natural world in the backdrop of an urban setting."

Where to find it: The piece will be located at 1345 W. Main Street, in the courtyard of the development bordered by I-275, Rome, Columbus and the Hillsborough River.
