Nestled at the entrance of Owen’s Fish Camp in Sarasota County, the mural depicting the sculpture of "Tate" stands as a vibrant testament to the area’s rich cultural and artistic heritage. Owen’s Fish Camp, renowned for its southern charm and delectable seafood, is not just a culinary destination but a historic landmark itself, echoing the rustic and communal spirit of early Sarasota. This mural, a vivid creation by Mandy Fulton, captures "Tate" in a moment of serene repose, set against a lush backdrop of verdant foliage and the iconic banyan trees that are emblematic of Sarasota’s landscape. The detailed rendering of Tate, relaxed in a folding chair with a beverage in hand, encapsulates the laid-back, welcoming ambiance that defines Owen’s Fish Camp. The verdant surroundings and the prominent position of the sculpture underscore the integral role nature and art play in the community's daily life.

The inclusion of Owen Burns' name in the mural further ties the artwork to Sarasota's history. Owen Burns was a pivotal figure in the development of Sarasota, contributing significantly to the city's early growth and infrastructure. Celebrating Burns alongside the sculpture of Tate, this mural weaves together past and present, honoring those who have shaped Sarasota’s narrative while also highlighting the contemporary cultural assets that continue to thrive. This artwork not only serves as an inviting visual for visitors to Owen’s Fish Camp but also as a homage to the indelible mark made by its historical figures, immortalizing them in the heart of the community they helped build. It is a vibrant reminder of the stories and personalities that construct Sarasota's enduring charm and character.
