Hot Date: Refractory Heats Up Tampa Heights For One Night Only, Oct. 15

Prepare to be dazzled! A group of Tampa's most creative and talented culture and art enthusiasts invites you to a one-night show October 15 in Tampa Heights.

Dubbed The Refractory, the idea is to transform an abandoned factory on the Hillsborough River into a "kaleidoscope of moving images and media art in an exhibition that engages the historic nature of the building and explores the interstitial space between.''

The former Tampa Armature Works building (also called the Trolley Barn) at 1910 N. Ola Ave. just north of downtown Tampa promises to become a sight to behold as more than a dozen local and national new media and video artists install a Dreammachine for the ages and create images designed to capture your imagination and stay in your mind forever.

Featured artists include Robert Chambers, Genesis P. Orridge, Negativland, Spanky and Maureen Hudas, Richard Kern, Gerhardt Gruen, James Johnson, Clem Crowder, FaFa, Gean Moreno, Michael LeMieux, Kurt Piazza, Robb Fladry, Aaron Hutcheson, Brian Taylor, Noelle Mason and Ellen Mueller.

Admission is a suggested donation of $5. The show starts at 8 p.m.
