Tampa Bay residents will see their own work up in lights on Feb. 19, 2011, when The City of Tampa kicks off its third Lights On Tampa biennial at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park. A project called “Shedding Light,” by Juliet Davis and Stephanie Tripp, will collect photos and videos from the public, asking people to “capture unusual moments of light in their communities.”
A compilation of the images and videos submitted will be unveiled on the Portal, a digital gateway through the arts, which is a permanent three-screened installation placed along the Tampa Riverwalk. Some of the images selected will appear on a screen of the Portal, while others will appear in an online exhibit at SheddingLightProject.com.
To submit your work, send links to photos and/or videos to firstname.lastname@example.org with subject line: “Shedding Light Submission.” Teachers and group leaders who are interested in participating with their classes and local organizations, please see “Workshops” for a lesson plan you can share, or contact the artists to visit your group.
