If you don't already keep an ear out for visiting artist/scholar talks at the University of South Florida's College of Visual and Performing Arts on a regular basis, you're missing a chance to hear and speak with some of the most interesting artists to pass through Tampa Bay. (If only everyone they hosted was also exhibiting here...)
On Thurs., Feb. 5, emerging San Francisco-based painter Leslie Shows gives a talk at 7 p.m. in FAH 290 on the Tampa campus. Listen to a conversation she had with the folks over at Bad at Sports last summer by clicking here.
