The Tampa Bay area, consisting of Tampa, St. Petersburg, and Clearwater, is not only Florida’s most populous metropolitan area, but also its most affluent. Given its cultural diversity (with its strong Latino presence, it is considered one of the most integrated American cities), coupled with its beautiful beaches, ideal climate, and lack of a state income tax, it is no wonder why so many people call Tampa their home. While the city does not have a clear art district, there are plenty of neighborhoods that offer a variety of art spaces and attractions. Tampa’s Latin Quarter, Ybor City, for example, used to maintain a thriving artistic enclave replete with studios, book stores, and cafes appealing to the bohemian mindset. Unfortunately, as more people discovered this treasure just north of downtown, the neighborhood experienced some serious gentrification and, as a result, many of the artists have left. However, Ybor city still has a lot to offer including the Ybor City Museum, the Columbia Restaurant and Museum, Hoffman-Porges Gallery, Brad Cooper Gallery, and Gaspar’s Grotto, all of which can be most enjoyed on Ybor City’s gallery night on the second Wednesday of each month. Additionally, Tampa’s downtown area is home to the Tampa Museum of Art, the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center, and Channelside, a 230,000 square-foot dining and entertainment center adjacent to the Florida Aquarium. There has also recently been a strong push by community members and organizations such as Art Movement to further enhance the downtown waterfront area and, through this, incorporate more art attractions. Finally, St. Petersburg is where you’ll find most of the best of Tampa’s art scene as it hosts the internationally famous Salvador Dali Museum, the Florida Holocaust Museum, and the Museum of Fine Art. These, along with a great number of galleries, are best enjoyed during “Sunsational Museums Month”, a celebration of the arts with special events and discounts throughout the month of November. Ultimately, Tampa is a city set on forward progress in the arts and the momentum to create real support for area artists seems to be growing. A quick car ride can take art students to any of the numerous attractions, or a single visit to Lynn Ash’s mural “The Story of Tampa”, located in the Tampa Municipal Office Building, masterfully illustrates all that the city has to offer and to celebrate.
