THINGS YOU THOUGHT YOU COULD DESTROY, a juried group exibtion at TEMPUS PROJECTS

Tempus Projects is pleased to present Things You Thought You Could Destroy, our 2015 juried summer exhibtion. Selections were made by guest juror, Justin Bryan Nelson. The exhibition is scheduled to open Saturday, July 11th and run through August 14th. This all-media exhibition will feature works that loosely glean inspiration or fit themes related to intentional destruction. Featured artists included: Lauren Garber Lake, Roberto Marquez, Timothy McMillan, Brittany Metz, Sam Newton, Jake Northrup, Kale Roberts, Rion Sabean, Chase Sherman, John Steck Jr., Bethany Taylor, Katie Waugh, and Matthew Wicks. This exhibtion opens Saturday, July 11, with an opening recpetion, from 7-10pm. Tempus Projects is located at 4636 N. Florida Ave., Tampa, FL 33603. This event is sponsored in part by The Mermaid Tavern, where there will be an after party directly following the reception.

Established in 2009, TEMPUS PROJECTS is a non-profit arts organization run by a volunteer board of artist and arts professionals and operates thanks to the generosity of local sponsors, members, and donations from the general public. Dedicated to nurturing established and emerging local, national and international artists through exhibitions and events, the project promotes artists working in all media and originates, organizes and hosts exhibitions that engage the Tampa Bay community through the visual arts.

In October of 2014, TEMPUS PROJECTS received official designation as a Federal 501(c)3 non-profit arts organization. The non-profit designation was immediately followed by a grant to support the 2015 exhibition programing by the Gobioff Foundation. The Gobioff Foundation is a private family foundation which works to support human rights organizations, education, and the Tampa, Florida arts community. This is the largest single donation TEMPUS Projects has received to date.


TEMPUS PROJECTS is highly regarded as cultural catalyst and a neighborhood touchstone. It has contributed greatly to the district’s emergence as a unique and creative local destination. In acknowledgment of its contributions to the arts and the community, Tampa’s Creative Loafing awarded TEMPUS Projects the "Best Alternative Art Space" Loafie award for four consecutive years. TEMPUS Projects has worked in collaboration with Experimental Skeleton, Silver Meteor Gallery, Tampa’s Downtown Partnership, Blue Bird Books and Creative Loafing.
