Check out local artists, live music in Ybor City

Published October 19, 2006

The Ybor City Museum is a slice of Tampa's past, when immigrants put down roots in the city and transformed it into a rich melting pot. On Friday, the museum celebrates that heritage and looks to the future with "Revolution and Renewal: A Contemporary View of Ybor City."

The work of local artists, including the gelatin silver print by Maida Millan, will be exhibited and sold in the museum's garden on E Ninth Avenue and at Tres Amici Coffee and Wine Bar adjacent to the museum, also on E Ninth Avenue between 18th and 19th streets. Among other featured artists are Hector Del Campo, Laszlo Horvath, Diana Lucas Leavengood, Anthony Peck, David Audet, Karen Krystofinsky, Erik Zimmerman, Daniel Williams, Brent Thorlton, Alyssa Davie, Scott Waltz, Dustin Koncinsky, Guillermo Pontiels and Leoneth Rodriquez. Local bands the Beauvilles, Worldwide Zoo and Candy Bars will perform along with DJ Franco Silva from WMNF-FM 88.5. The event begins at 7 p.m. and is free. Ten percent of sales will benefit the museum. (813) 247-1434 or
