Ybor City Featured on “Arts Plus”

Received this info in an email this morning from Cahntal Rullova Hevla, President of the Ybor City Museum Society:

Good morning,

Last evening, WEDU premiered a segment of their “Arts Plus” program that features Ybor City’s Architecture and history. In addition to the Ybor City Museum State Park, Swope Rodante, and Oliva Building, many vintage and current-day photos are included in the program. The WEDU production staff spent two days in Ybor City taking photos and filming the segment, which highlights our history as well as a broad range of architectural styles – from casitas to major buildings.

The 10-minute segment will run again on Sunday, 1 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. It will soon be posted at

Best regards,
