“Working with Bruce Merenda is sheer joy. How rare to find someone so brilliant and creative who also has excellent people skills! His ability to listen to our ideas and incorporate them into a much grander vision made us part of the creative process and resulted in a children’s area that’s a spectacular focal point in an already spectacular building. I’m certain you would have a similar experience, because Mr. Merenda is a consummate professional.“

“St. Petersburg College recently had the pleasure of working with Bruce Merenda on the new Seminole Community Library at St. Petersburg College…The library director had ideas about what he wanted to do and Bruce was able to create a theme that far exceeded anything we ever imagined. In the first meeting between Bruce, myself and the library director, I watched as Michael tried to explain his desires and as Bruce was coming up with ideas, Michael’s smile just got bigger and bigger. I knew at that point we had found the perfect artist. Bruce was able to take all the elements that we had envisioned and made them work together within our budget…At the Grand Opening of the Seminole Library, the children’s area was quite a hit….We look forward to working with Bruce on this and other future projects as well.“
