Kimberly Vorperian’s 'Old Home Place' art installation opens June 30 from 7 p.m.-10 p.m. and will run through July 30 at The Far Forest located at 4312 N Florida Ave. in Tampa.
Complete with themes of midsummer, ancient architecture and ancestral wisdom, The Far Forest’s newest art installation welcomes the creative and the curious.

The Far Forest is bringing visual artist Kimberly Vorperian’s “Old Home Place” to Tampa starting tonight. The immersive and sensory-rich installation will be put on in tandem with this month’s Heightened Senses, a night market and block party hosted at The Far Forest.

The installation opens June 30 from 7 p.m.-10 p.m. and will run through July 30 at The Far Forest located at 4312 N Florida Ave., Tampa. Admission is free and food and beverages from local vendors will be available for purchase.
Vorperian’s “Old Home Place” appeals to the young at heart, playing on shared memories and themes of what has been forgotten. The Lakeland, Florida-based artist drew loose inspiration from Tom Robbins’ cult classic “Jitterbug Perfume,” a novel filled with interweaving storylines and quests for immortality.

Vorperian combined natural building techniques, modern-day technologies and repurposed materials to create a life-size dwelling for her viewers to explore. She hopes to create an installation that is both familiar and foreign and pushes viewers to rethink needs for living.
