Artwork chosen for Lights on Tampa 2015 is diverse, engaging, and multi-disciplinary, using new technologies, music, dance, and the literary arts.

Nick Cave will be at Lights on Tampa!

Nick Cave – Chicago – Internationally recognized performance artist and sculptor Nick Cave is bringing a herd of thirty colorful life-size horses to Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park. HEARD is a magical, choreographed performance that brings local dancers and musicians together, some in costume and accompanied by live music and captures both light and the imagination. HEARD performances will take place at 6:30 and 8:30 p.m. each night, accompanied by rayzilla’s Adjustable Music Monsters performing original music composed / arranged by Tampa-based musician, Ray “rayzilla” Villadonga, featuring excerpts from Keith Hedger’s Dervish.
