Event details

s p r a w l is an exhibition of thirteen artists based in Tampa, FL. Tampa, a city characterized by its history of cigar manufacturing, exotic dancing, pirate lore, and sporadically successful sports franchises, is also home to a diverse, thoughtful, and talented population of artists. Like Tampa itself, which is a broad conglomeration of neighborhoods lacking the unity that a functional public transit system might provide a similarly-sized metropolis, Tampa’s arts sector presently reflects a siloing, with multiple art communities organized around unique audiences that rarely intersect. Admittedly far from comprehensive, s p r a w l is nevertheless a survey of Tampa artists selected to represent the depth and breadth of the city’s various visual arts communities across a range of media, educational backgrounds, professional affiliations, and neighborhoods. As such, the exhibition, curated by Tampa-based artist Emilio Settecasi, presents an aspirational vision of an inclusive and unified Tampeño visual arts community to an audience whose distance from Tampa affords them the opportunity to experience, evaluate, and enjoy Tampa’s collective artistic voice from a perspective that is both fresh and without presupposition.
