Art & Architecture is the theme and inspiration of this show put together by "The Art Pros Group". The exhibitors are artists and architects. Artists embellish buildings and penetrate their interiors; the artwork fuses with the building. Architects are creators of urban sculptures and cityscapes.
When art and architecture are integrated from the initial planning stage, new forms arise. To borrow the definition from our city planners; they enhance our urban environment in creating places of beauty and originality that offer a sense of community, a space for contemplation, and a higher standard for quality of life.
Is this show about "The Rise of the Creative Class" whose work will give city it's original identity and help the economic boost? It is more about the transfer from art to architecture and the encouragement to see "meaningful new forms".
A creative class of people is already here; they just need to hear that such new forms are a demand and an expectation "as a matter of fact in our daily lives".
"Art and Architecture Show" will run from Sept. 1st. till Oct. 30th. 2003, at
One Tampa City Center, 201 N. Franklin Street, Tampa.
Entrance is free and open to the public during working hours.
