City of Tampa Photographer Laureates 2003-2013
Each year from 2003-2013, the City of Tampa, Art Programs Division commissioned an artist to photograph a perspective of the City of Tampa with an emphasis on what it means to be in Tampa at this particular time in history. The result of this juried process has produced a public collection and archive that is representative of the life and times in Tampa by regional, national, and international photographers. A selection of photographs from each laureate will be on view.
