Southwest Florida artist David Acevedo has been selected by the Zimmer Development Company as the creator of the image for their mosaic mural project to be installed in the River District.
The company commissioned Acevedo to create a piece exclusively for the project, which is expected to unveil later this year.
David Acevedo moved to the area in 2000. He is a co-founder of the popular Fort Myers Art Walk event and founder of DAAS Co-Op Art Gallery & Gifts, The Union Artist Studios and most recently, co-founder of Arts & Eats Café.

As a mixed media and multidisciplinary artist, he has created hundreds of artworks and exhibited in numerous individual and group exhibitions in and outside the United States. His recent body of work focuses on his roots, stemming from his upbringing in the beautiful island of Puerto Rico, and his ever-present search for bits and pieces of an idealistic past. These elements mix with an impeccable palette of colors and textures, creating a fantastical scenery where imagination and reality find cohesiveness.
“Zimmer Development Company is excited to announce this collaborative partnership with renowned artist David Acevedo, the Fort Myers Community Redevelopment Agency, and the Fort Myers Public Art Committee,” says development manager Spencer Peterson. “This dynamic collaboration aims to bring together artistic visionaries to transform David Acevedo’s exceptional piece into a breathtaking mosaic mural,” adds Peterson, who is coordinating with a globally recognized mosaicist to bring the project to life.
The mosaic mural, entitled after Acevedo’s piece “The Living Lands” will be installed at the corner of First Street and Fowler Street at Zimmer Development Company’s multifamily development, The Ivy, that is on schedule to open this year. The artwork depicts a mangrove as the main subject, symbolizing the protection of our coasts. The rest of the abstract elements serve as symbols of what Southwest Florida represents for the artist, executed in the artist’s highly recognizable style.
