Tampa Museum of Art

4 posts in this topic

Well, it looks like the plan to put the art museum in the cubes and part of the "Beer Can" down town is off. I really wish that we could get the new museum off the ground though. Tampa has a pretty good art museum, but it could be a defining part of hte city if our civic leaders could get behind a plan and go forward. Here is a link to the arrticle in TBO from today:TBO link

Tampa needs to add culture to DT, and a great art museum is a good place to start. Now, if there were only a way to get there easily by rail..........cough, cough, trolly extension. Oh, wait, that might make it too easy for people that come in on cruise ships to get to though. :rolleyes: A DT where one can get around by a good distibutor could be the back-bone of a great urban upward expansion in our fair town, no, it is a boack-bone of ANY good urban center. But that is enough about transit! LOL

Off my soap box,

Well, it looks like they are planning on being in Curtis Hixon Park right now. More updates as they come in.

I think that could be a OK area as long as the WHOLE area gets developed correctly. Tampa could really use a fantastic museum like this. It really could define our DT if it was designed correctly.

I have seen the renerings for the other plans....but not this most recent plan. If any pop up I would like to see them too. I think right now it is maninly a proposal so there may not be renerings for a few more weeks.
