A huge new art walk is coming to Tampa’s storied South Howard Avenue November 5 from 12pm-5pm. The original event was set for October but had to be rescheduled due to Hurricane Ian. The first-ever SoHo Artwalk is described as a one-day showcase of local artists, featuring painters-at-work, face painting, caricature drawing, custom poetry by typewriter, roaming poets, a dance performance, t-shirt printing, and other family-friendly art activities.
Taking place along Tampa’s Howard Avenue, the event will also include displays of local artwork for purchase spanning a wide variety of styles including pop art, contemporary, abstract, surrealism, fine art, mixed media and more. A mural entitled “Love Birds” will also be unveiled during the day at the Bern’s Steak House warehouse, located across from 717 South and Ava.
SoHo Art Walk celebrates Tampa businesses and creatives
Maps showing designated stops on the SoHo Artwalk will be available at various locations and on display at Ike Smart City kiosks across the city of Tampa. The map can be found online here and a complete list of participating artists can be found here.
The SoHo Artwalk is the brainchild of Tyler Sirota, art curator at the Epicurean Hotel and several other venues, who created the event to promote the area’s rich artistic talent with the Tampa Bay community. The Artwalk officially begins at noon and runs until 5pm.
