NEW WATERFRONT PARK EXHIBIT
Commissioned by Tampa's Public Art Program
"Shedding Light," by Juliet Davis and Stephanie Tripp, is one of three outdoor video exhibits in Tampa's new Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park, opening Feb. 19, 2011, during the Lights on Tampa biennial celebration. The "Shedding Light" project, which is accompanied by community workshops, asks members of local communities to shed (release) their traditional notions of public spectacle and share their own photos and videos via social media.
