2014 marked the first year of Gasp!, a new, multi-disciplinary performing arts festival. Creative Loafing and Tampa Museum of Art crafted a lineup of the best emerging artists across Tampa Bay, as well as local favorites you’d been dying to see!

Gasp! 2014 took place on Friday, March 28 from 6 to 10 p.m. General Admission attendees were entertained by performers throughout the entire Museum and enjoyed artisanal pizzas on the Museum’s terrace and drinks from the cash bars from Sono Café and Mise en Place. VIP attendees took advantage of all the programming Gasp! had to offer, as well as exclusive performances and visual art in the VIP room and complimentary refreshments, including bar bite pairings from Sono Café and Mise en Place-- caviar spread, soft pretzel bites with flavored mustards, local sausages and more!

Bonus: The Museum's stunning new exhibition, "Graphicstudio: Uncommon Practice," will be opened exclusively for Gasp! attendees the night of the festival.
