“The Riviera Beach Community Redevelopment Agency would like to thank Murals by Georgeta for being a vital part of our Riviera Beach Art and Branding Project. Georgeta had the daunting task of installing a great piece of artwork at the main intersection of our City. The design and the final product was truly something special. Her positive work ethic and consummate professionalism were also to be admired. We look forward to working with her in the near future.” – Riviera Beach CRA Leadership

 

“We hired Georgeta for a custom paint project on the keel bulb of a racing sailboat belonging to a client. She was very professional and worked with us to get the design exactly as we wanted it. She was also super flexible about using the marine paint that was required for the job. Once the work started, she was incredibly efficient and actually finished ahead of schedule. The result was excellent and was identical to the presented design. We would absolutely work with Georgeta again and highly recommend her for custom paintwork.”  Brad Magovsky, AREA 51 Global Logistics

 

I have worked with Georgeta for three Public Art mural projects… I have had the privilege to witness her work ethic and ability to communicate and work with staff and stakeholders to achieve a consensus regarding the final mural. She is a tireless worker who constantly reworks her designs to accommodate all the opinions offered.  I highly recommend Georgeta Fondos as an extremely creative artist, muralist, professional artist, and creative mind to execute a mural for you.”  Beth Ravitz, Public  Artist and Artist Consultant, Lauderhill, Florida

 

“Georgeta is absolutely AMAZING. She is able to take a verbal concept and transform it into an incredible tangible creation. We have had her paint several murals in our office and each one is phenomenal!! …Georgeta was AMAZING to work with. Her creativity knows no boundaries and her creations bring joy to all who view them. Teresa Miller, Vice President, Human Resources, Garden of Life, Palm Beach Gardens, Florida

 

Georgeta is very professional and reliable and spends a lot of time in doing research for the project. She provides very detailed designs. As a result, her murals are very complex and engaging.”  George Gadson, Public Artist and Artist Consultant, Tamarac, Florida

 

“Superb work! She took a photograph of a Costa Rica Rainforest and made it come alive on my outside wall, using a scaffold to reach high and difficult spots. The attention to detail and realism were stunning. We are very satisfied with the result and professionalism of the job.” C. Cary, Parkland, Florida.

An excerpt from an article by Boca Watch that describes what Red Reef Park used to be

Read more here.

The reef was a series of large, squared off boulders, each about as wide as a double lane road. They were huge, and the corners of them were squared off, so they appeared like a long line that could have been man-made like they were dropped there, but they were massive. Under some, there were ledges and dark caves that served as hiding places for anything large. Between some were gaps, sometimes 8 to 10 feet deep. They were only about 10 or 20 yards offshore, so for kids like I was in the late 70s, it was easy to get to and snorkel. Some of the rock structure still can be seen where the water meets the land, in front of the lifeguard stand closest to the entrance.

There were all sorts of colorful things growing on and around the reef. There were purple sea fans and sponges. The red coral that gave the reef its name coated the surface of the boulders wherever it could. The green sea plants grew in hundreds of hues, patterns, and shapes. Long grasses, tiny nodules, and fuzzy hair algae waved back and forth with the waves. When I swam the reef I remember seeing a large brain coral growing, and recalled how Gordon Gilbert said how those kinds of coral took centuries to get so large.
