Seminole Heights’ Tempus Projects is celebrating 10 years of incubating art with a big group exhibition and a change of address.

The group show, “X: A Decade of Tempus Projects,” is set for December 14 and will include artists that have been featured in solo or two person exhibitions at Tempus in the past 10 years. Tempus Projects owner and Creative Director Tracy Midulla told CL that the roster includes more than 60 artists and a performance from Kalup Linzy, plus a limited-edition, 10-volume, mini-catalogue set.

“The very exciting news is that we will be celebrating... in our new space on Nebraska Avenue, in the same structure as Tim Ogden’s new brewery,” Midulla, 45, told CL. The relocation was at a standstill last week, but things got moving on Monday when Midulla shared additional details about the new space at 3800 N. Nebraska Ave in Ybor Heights.

Apparently Tempus, whose lease is up in Seminole Heights on January 31, and Ogden’s Deviant Libation aren't the only organizations moving in. Crab Devil — a new artist collective made up of members of Tempus Projects, LiveWork Studios, as well as other local artists, investors, and philanthropists — is banding together to create what Midulla called “Tampa's first ever large-scale, permanent, immersive arts experience.”

“We will be working together to combine the creative energies found in Tampa's vibrant art and beer scenes to create a destination unique to this area,” Midulla added. The large scale project means that there are a lot of moving pieces involved, but Midulla said that the community should start seeing the beginning of the collaboration by early next year.

“Big things on the horizon,” she added. “Now if I can just find an eighth day of the week to do it all!”
