Last week artist Tracey Dear lit up 5 Tampa bridges in a project titled Agua Luces. Backed by Mayor Bob Buchorn, Tampa Electric and Peoples Gas, and the Lights On Tampa Committee, this will be a permanent fixture to the City of Tampa. When the installation is complete, 9 bridges will be lit in total. The Platt Street Bridge, the Brorein Street Bridge, the Tampa-Hillsborough Expressway Authority overpass, the Kennedy Boulevard Bridge, and the CSX Railroad Bridge were all illuminated in a ceremony on August 10, 2012.

Aaah Tampa in neon! Hey if it took a bunch of rich curmudgeonly old dudes to get this project going, so be it. Looking good, Tampa Bay.

Today, August 1st, the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) in Boston is showcasing the first-ever US solo show from brothers Otavio and Gustavo, better known as Brazilian legends Os Gemeos. I have yet to see this mural in person but have been observing its progress on the sly, via Os Gemeos and 12ozprophet's instagram.
Been a fan of these two since college and it’s pretty great that they are getting more recognition here in the US. Wish more cities featured giant murals by them. Let’s make this a thing, America!
The exhibit runs from Aug 1 - Nov 25, 2012 at the ICA Fotene Demoulas Gallery
