Where To…Tampa Bay, Florida

2.23.19 Hey there and hello Tampa Bay! What can you do in Tampa? Well, take a look for yourself… TAMPA MUSEUM OF ART From the museum’s website: The Tampa Museum of Art opened its award-winning new building in 2010 with a commitment to provide innovative public programs with a focus on ancient, modern, and contemporary art. The Museum balances a growing collection, including one of the largest Greek and Roman antiquities collections in the southeastern United States, with a dynamic annual schedule of special exhibitions. The region’s largest institution devoted to the art of our time, the Museum has fostered a reputation for presenting contemporary photography and new media; most notably, Leo Villareal’s Sky (Tampa), a 14,000-square-foot LED installation on its south façade, has become an iconic landmark for Tampa. Since its founding in 1979, the Museum has been dedicated to providing quality education to students and adults, with more than half of its programs offered free of charge. The Museum is home to Riverwalk Cafe at TMA, a Cafe featuring favorite local flavors overlooking the …

Where To…Atlanta, Georgia

10.20.18 Back from London and now we are in Atlanta, Georgia. What can you do in Atlanta? Pretty much everything… Credit source: http://www.atlanta.net & City of Atlanta Office of Cultural Affairs   Launched in 2011, the first exhibition of ELEVATE hosted 15 events and 40 performances over 66 days. Artwork filled vacant properties, street corners and plazas to showcase artwork ranging from 13 story murals to contemporary dance, video, installation, and poetry. Although public funding allocated through our percent for art program was the direct source for the artist commissions, additional funding to execute an exhibition of this caliber was provided through local Atlanta businesses. Donation of art space, hotel rooms, theatrical lighting, food, advertising, and cash support nearly doubled the exhibitions initial budget, demonstrating the immediate community support.

The artwork has now been incorporated into the permanent downtown landscape. In addition …
