The City of Tampa’s Division of Arts and Cultural Affairs plays a key role in telling the story of our city; it also humanizes the built environment and invigorates public spaces. Artwork commissioned through any of the programs under the division may provide an intersection between past, present and future, between disciplines, and between ideas.
