The Florida Museum of Photographic Arts (FMoPA) is moving into a new downtown Tampa location at the corner of Ashley Drive and Kennedy Boulevard (next to the "beer can" building).

The museum will occupy the second and third floors of the six-story building known as the "Cube" in Rivergate Tower, next to Kiley Gardens.

Trickey Jennus, a full-service advertising agency in Tampa, donated pro bono work for the FMoPA during their annual Creatathon, a project involving huge outdoor graphics that were installed this past weekend on the exterior of the building. The installation was conducted at no charge by workers from Bay Area Window Cleaning. The graphics were supplied by Fastsigns on Kennedy. The images selected cover past, present, future and permanent exhibitions.
