Here is a slideshow from our adventures in Ybor City at Magnum Opus, a tremendously successful art event presented by Square One and produced by Okesene Tilo.
The event was absolutely packed, and people were waiting in line around the block to make their way into the Ritz Theater, that many Tampa kids may recall used to be the old Masquerade. Since Natalie is an artist that was exhibiting in the show, we were able to skip all the lines and go right in with our crew. We even had someone tried to gank our in and claim she and her friends were with us. Ah, love Ybor!
The large space inside was filled fashion divas, acres of canvas spread across the walls that made up what appeared to be a billions pieces of art. The Ritz is an absolutely perfect space to host this kind of large event. Looks like it can handle anything from concerts to art shows and everything in between. Very cool space in which to party. Bodies were packed tightly, but that was okay. It was a party and everyone was having a good time. Music was on stage, the energy was great. It felt great to see this kind of event in Ybor. More, please. And more often.
