The GOP Republican National Convention in Tampa is less than 5 weeks away; this will be the biggest convention event ever in Tampa and Tampa Bay. This high level national hoorah is like having a big fancy social engagement in your home, except that the convention will be spending upwards of $100 MILLION! Everybody is busy painting, picking up, cleaning up and planning for the big political presidential assembly. This past Sunday the RNC took over the Tampa Bay Times Forum and Tampa Convention Center. We are sure there will be a lot of OMG moments with this convention.

A contemporary artist born in Brazil this international known artist now calls GaYBOR/Ybor City his casa (home). A lot of his work is hanging in the King Corona Gallery on 7th. Some of his work has made it into the rooms of local mayor’s homes. We were very lucky to have David be one of the invited artists in the “Pianos of Ybor” exhibit. Today you may see his piano at MC Film. David is what makes GaYBOR so wonderful.
