Visit Tampa Bay and Mergeculture Launch Local Legacy

Local Legacy at Visit Tampa Bay

A city’s identity is shaped by those who contribute to the culture. We have partnered with our city’s gift shop and visitors center to showcase local artists and creators. Each month, Mergeculture Gallery will curate or co-curate works from local artists to be featured in the Unlock Tampa Bay gift shop. We will also work with our events management partners, Bloom Initiatives, which is a division of CLRTY Agency, the creative placemaking agency that Mergeculture operates under, to produce events featuring local visual artists and musicians.

This new program, called Local Legacy kicks off during Black History Month with artists:

Tiffany Cooper
Chris Jones
Chris Mathis
Chinelle Rojas
Quinn Cale

The artwork was co-curated by Jaurice Moore (The Art of Jau).

You can visit the work on display throughout the month of February at 201 N Franklin St #102, Tampa, FL 33602.
