Art and Light
Lights on Tampa is a modern take on public art, combining creativity and technology in works that twinkle, sparkle and dance in the night sky, created by some of the finest light artists in the world.
Curtis Hixon Park, next to the new Glazer Children's Museum, is the center of the event. Here you'll see light exhibits that will complement the feel of the emerging Arts District venues surrounding it. From there, you can visit other light displays between downtown and Channelside. For a map of the venues, plus information on the displays, click here.
And be sure to visit our own permanent addition to the lightscape - the new TECO Line Streetcar System station at Whiting and Franklin streets features a color-changing light show titled "Siteliner," created by artist James Woodfill, that you won't want to miss.

Taking the Green Line makes parking a breeze, too. You can park in any of the downtown, Channel District or Ybor City garages and catch a ride on the streetcar or trolley to visit all of the exhibits. Just be sure to note, the free ride coupons are valid only on the rubber-wheel In-Town Trolleys. Regular fares on the TECO Line Streetcar System will apply.
