The Lights On Tampa Program for 2020 is a bifurcated program—meaning that there are two separate but coexisting components to the Lights On Tampa 2020 Program.

The first component and NEW to the Lights On Tampa Program is a water borne flotilla that is envisioned to be creative, fun, inspiring and fantastical. Artwork should be able to be sustained, repeated if an active artwork and/or displayed nightly over a period of time to be determined (maximum anticipated window is 10–14 days).

The second component is for a selection of artwork to be sited at or within three existing, high visibility sites located in downtown Tampa, Florida. The site locations designated for the permanent artwork are: The Tampa Convention Center, The Tampa Riverwalk at the Harbour Island Bridge, and the Channelside Drive Tunnel.

Lights On Tampa is a public/private partnership between the City of Tampa’s Art Programs Division and the Public Art Alliance, a 501(c)3 organization. Its mission is to bring free access to artistic excellence. As the program enters its fourteenth year, it continues to provide diverse, multi-sensory experiences that are memorable and engaging.
