You think this is just a list of fun art to check out on the weekend?! This is about more than just ‘fun’! Being appraised of the best of Tampa’s art is good for your character! With so much at stake, I have no idea why anyone would miss either of these exhibits.
The merry band of culture patrons known as Philanthropic Young Tampa Bay descend on Boca Hyde Park tonight, May 10th. You can join the gang with an admission fee of $5.
Boca is the latest in locally sourced restaurants that have been trending lately. In addition to great fresh food, with admission you’ll find snacks and drink specials.
Also, the evening will be featuring the work of the talented local photographer Rion Sabean. His Men-Ups series makes use of the visual language vintage pin-ups. However, photographing male models makes for both a funny product and a thought-provoking one. When I stopped giggling, the psychological fetish in the structure of pin-ups, the faux innocence intrinsic to the form, becomes clear. Check out his work at the Huffington Post here or at Juxtapoz here.
All of this fun is geared toward sponsoring the first exhibition at the new home of the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts. Check out the Facebook event page here.
