We got a sneak peak of Tempus Project’s long-awaited “Home is Anywhere you Hang your Head” over the weekend, and it’s shaping up beautifully.
The theme of the art show—what we choose to call home—plays out in a series of home-inspired vignettes.
Home is Anywhere you Hang Your Head
Sept. 17-Oct. 17, 2021
Opening reception Sept. 17, 6-10 p.m.
Tempus Projects, 4220 N Florida Ave., Tampa
Each is like a small-scale living room or bedroom decorated with work by Tampa-based artists. Tempus Projects Creative Director Tracy Midulla curated the 13 home vignettes by combining work from about 3-5 Tampa-based artists with functional furniture. The result: you get to see what your living/working space would look like if you chose to decorate it with things made by Tampa artists. Midulla assures us that this is absolutely the point of the show. And if you want, you can purchase items off the walls and take them home with you. Some are cash and carry. Others you’ll have to wait until the show is over. But if you think Tempus looks awesome this fall, and it totally does, remember that your place could look just as cool if you buy local.
The biggest fan of the show thus far is Midulla’s dog Augy, who’s truly made himself at home in Tempus’ latest art exhibition.
“Every time we make a room, he sits in it and is like, ‘Thank you for making this room for me,’” Midulla told CL.
Midulla’s planning some opportunities for you to make yourself at home in the exhibition as well, including an intimate living room concert with music arranged by Wave Theory Oct. 13-14 and a possible movie night. Keep an eye on Tempus Project’s social media so you don’t miss out on any of these fun extras.
