We are happy to announce that the NOMAD Art Bus will be participating in Creative Pinellas' CARMADA event in downtown St. Pete.
It's all day Saturday, September 27th. You don't want to miss this FREE event.
CARMADA is a local celebration of the international art car movement. The waterfront plaza will be invaded by art cars from our community, and the Art Bus will be there so you can exercise your own creative inspiration in or ON the bus.
More info from the official CARMADA event page:
The art car movement takes over St. Petersburg on Saturday, Sept. 27 when CARMADA rolls into the Plaza at the Duke Energy Center for the Arts, between the Salvador Dali Museum and Mahaffey Theater.
This special event, a partnership between Creative Pinellas and the City of St. Petersburg, will present custom art cars by regional artists, live painting, interactive projects and crafts from community arts organizations, and more.
While artists transform cars into mobile artwork live on site, visitors can learn about the State of the Arts specialty license plate (which helps fund local arts agencies) and feast from food trucks as DJ Blenda spins.
CARMADA event proceeds will jointly benefit Creative Pinellas, Class Acts Performance Series arts education for school children, and professional local artists. A $5 suggested donation at the door includes free craft activities. (VIP ticket information coming soon.)
Current confirmed participating CARMADA artists include Sebastian Coolidge, Derek Donnelly, James Oleson, Stephen Palladino, Hunter Payne, Joshua Pearson, and the NOMADstudio Art Bus.
Current confirmed community partners representing at CARMADA include Mahaffey Theater, The Dali Museum, Raymond James Gasparilla Festival of the Arts, Dunedin Fine Art Center, Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg, Florida and Keep Saint Petersburg Local, with more to be announced.
Save the date for this exciting event, and be there when the rubber hits the road in St. Petersburg!

There will be locally crafted beers on hand by Cycle Brewing and Peg’s Cantina. And there’s a very good chance that cake will be involved.
Friends of Tempus Projects:
Monday, September 22nd officially marks the end of summer for 2014. It’s been a long, hot summer and we plenty of reason to make merry. We are happy to dance our way into the fall season, while we celebrate our new 501(c)(3) non-profit status! YAHOO!
Please join us this Saturday, September 27th when Gabe Echazabal DJ’s another mini-fundraiser dance party at Tempus Projects from 9pm - midnight. All proceeds will go toward future programing and operational costs at Tempus Projects for the fall season.
A $5 suggested donation would be greatly appreciated at the door. Refreshments and snacks will be offered. While you are visiting the gallery see “dry” a group exhibition that explores the artists perspective on the basic, varying themes and interpretations of dry....”solid as opposed to liquid”, “lacking embellishment”, “having no personal bias or emotional concern”, in various media. Exhibiting artists include Justin Myers, Ryan de la Hoz, Taylor Finke, Chris Otten, Christina Humphries, Tony Lee, Hildebrando Bellizio, Linda Armstrong, Hector del Campo, Andrea Hope, Elizabeth Plakidas and more.We prefer that you leave your cell phones and cameras at home, secured elsewhere, or stashed away in a locker at Tempus. We insist that we do not see it out during the dance party in the main gallery. So we can all dance and have a good time with out the worry of being forever immortalized shakin’ it on the ‘inter-webs’. It is a NO-MEDIA-Dance-Party at Tempus Projects. Always.
