Bosco Sodi: Tabula Rasa (Tampa)
9:00am–noon
Meacham Urban Farm - 1108 E Scott St, Tampa, FL 33602

Mexican artist Bosco Sodi’s participatory public art performance Tabula Rasa invites visitors to collect their own seedpod from among the organic crops at Meacham Urban Farm in downtown Tampa’s urban core, to plant, nurture, and harvest in their own domestic space. Consisting of over a hundred clay seedpods formed by hand and embedded with heirloom corn seeds, the project highlights indigenous Mexican agricultural practices and their impact on food cultivation and sustainability in the United States, offering a symbolic message of hope, care, and mutual assistance through individual and collective action. A planting demonstration and tour of the farm will be provided. 

Tabula Rasa (Tampa) is supported by the Gobioff Foundation and the Stanton Storer Embrace the Arts Foundation, and is presented in partnership with Meacham Urban Farm and USF student organization CAM Club.

Additional parking available on the street and in the parking lot in the 1300 block of Governor St. at Scott St. 

Free admission; Visitors are expected to wear masks and practice social distancing.
