HCC Ybor City Campus Gallery Presents Heart Beat Bop

August 16, 2017


Tampa, FL

Hillsborough Community College’s Ybor City School of Visual and Performing Arts Gallery presents a solo exhibition by mixed media artist Tony Wong Palms—“Heart Beat Bop.” The exhibition will run from August 21st through September 28th.  An artist reception will take place on September 7th from 4:30 - 7:30 p.m. with an artist’s talk beginning at 6:15 p.m. Events are free and open to the public.


Of the trinity of essences (breath, heart and mind) that gives life and makes a human being cohesive, this exhibition focuses on the heart part of the equation. There are 15 pieces in various media, exploring the human story: the loves, the suffering, the evolution and discoveries in this one organ, during this journey we call life.

Tony Wong Palms is the exhibition designer for the University of South Florida Contemporary Art Museum and an avid explorer of inner space.

The Art Gallery is located in the HCC Performing Arts Building, first floor, Palm Ave and 15th Street, Ybor City.
